R​-​Zone 10 - The Waters Of Lethe / Desert Schematics / Broken Pyramids

by R-Zone



The mysterious and much loved R-Zone series hits release number ten here with another compelling three track affair. As ever, we don't know the artists behind the tracks, but as ever, they are fresh and freaky propositions that bottle up a world world of influences from rave to acid.

Up first is 'The Waters of Lethe', a busy and dense track full of blurting machines, metallic percussive patterns and insistent drum patterns. It's one for big dark warehouses and is sure to grab headlines. Then comes 'Desert Schematics', which has slithering snares whipping about like a loose hose pipe as mid tempo drums and arpeggiated bass do a physical dance below. Lastly, 'Broken Pyramid' marries nervy chord stabs with old school rave sounds, a twisted vocal and lots of techno energy. All in all these three tracks are tough to characterise, but rest assured they are all designed for maximum dance floor impact.
