REVIEW / DESCRIPTION
Aurelien Riviere's work as Doubtingthomas has been a staple of the tech-house stronghold since the late 00s, and he is often cited as a name which brought zest and freedom to the genre, unlike many of his more loop-minded contemporaries. He returns to Eastenderz with a tactile three-tracker, headlined by "Dem Unbekannten", a bleepy technoid bullet which evolves ever so gently into an endlessly hypnotic tunnel of atmospherics. "Bastide" is similarly shape-shifting, except the execution is more mechanical and dub-minded, whereas swarm heads deep into the minimal whirlpool. Effective tools for the open-minded tech-head.
