For the first release of Leeds born, London based label Mutual Response, R.O.E. delivers a club ready four-tracker with proven success on dance floors across Europe. The EP includes four varied productions from Ollie’s extensive catalogue, making a record which has something suitable for all hours.
’TRNSMSN2U’, a growling journey into breakbeat, builds to a climax with bubbling acid lines and distorted vocal samples, whilst A2, Specific Heat Capacity (Loop Mix), is a bouncy club tool which pairs a driving baseline with eerie melodies throughout.
‘Cyber Love’ continues the sinister themes of the previous side but increases the energy. More of Ollie’s trademark distorted vocals support a punchy low end and scattered percussion powerfully overlays levels of warping acid melodies. The final track, ‘0 Exceptions’, is a squelchy experiment in electro with everything you wouldn’t expect. Again, layers of acid are woven throughout and in combination with a dynamic low end, provide an unexpected depth sometimes missing in the genre.
