SPEC0907 – Ascion & D. Carbone “Shaved” Spectrum Recordings UK – TECHNO
Spectrum Recordings returns after the summer months with a fantastic deep dark two tracker to take us into those shorter nights of the year from Italian duo Ascion & Davide Carbone. The a side 'Shaved' is a stripped down dubby groover, with eerie vocal stabs and spacey edits. This has a seriously tripped out vibe, which is perfect for the after hours, but still with more then enough punch to work at peak time, with some layered percussion or effects. The flip side 'Spectral Town' is a minimal funky track, superbly produced and once again perfect for the after hours. A very cool and classy record from a label stamping its mark on the scene, and still only in its first year of releasing music. Look out for future releases from Ramon Tapia, Gui Boratto and Alan Fitzpatrick... Big things to come!
