DJ Sotofett / Vera Dvale - Detour Dub / To Want You 12"
Like many of you, we adored Vera Dvale’s efforts in Udu, for Sex Tags Amfibia - a full length of dark new age, glittering impersonally and impermanently. Now Dvale remains in the fam, joining Sotofett on the arcane DJ’s label Wania for a two track odyssey into melancholia. Dvale’s “To Want You” comes from the same stuff as Udu - an inky, ambiguous ambience without being maudlin, humanized by the part-lustful, part-naive voice of Merel Laine. Sotofett contributes a minimal groove to the other side, propelled by lazer-dub accents, a smattering of tribal drums and some subtly deep frequencies to keep it all glued. Very satisfying!
