Luke Vibert - WGD 12001
Format: 12" Vinyl
Catalogue No.: WGD12001
Release Date: Oct 2021
Paul Wise aka Placid is the driving force behind ‘We’re Going Deep’ – an online community and record label born out of a lifelong affair with the many shades of electronic rhythms and an obsession for collecting records since 1988. It’s safe to say that in 2021, he’s showing no signs of letting up.
Known to many in the realms of underground House and Techno, Paul has spent the last few decades moving heads and feet at select venues, parties and festivals across the UK and further afield. His mission is all about sharing and releasing new music for the dance floor, front room or even just your headphones.
As he readies the very first WGD “Solo Series” edition to compliment the label’s growing catalogue. Paul is honoured to welcome one of the Analords of Acid himself, Mr Luke Vibert. A legend and maker of myths in his own right, he is no stranger to providing top grade tackle of every genre he turns his hand to. From the twisted junglist stylings of ‘Amen Andrews’, to the abstract ambience of ‘Wagon Christ’, the bump and funk of ‘Kerrier District’ amongst a number of notorious aliases – there is something irrepressibly unique he brings to the mix that continues to garner him support across generations of music freaks.
For the inaugural occasion of the Solo Series, Vibert turns his hand to drop a trio of aptly named 303 workouts in his inimitable style, proving it’s not what you’ve got but really what you do with it that just oozes pure quality on every level. Leading the charge on Side A, a 13 minute master jam ‘Worward’ goes straight for the jugular with a full range 303 loop filling the mix that simply won’t let go as 808 rhythmic patter drives forward – ever evolving, twisting and turning deep into machine induced hypnosis. Press play and let this stick of audio dynamite blow.
Over on Side B, dip into the spatial atmospherics of ‘Dancehole’ as he marries an ever so slightly off-kiltered lead line to the simplest of drum sequences, all wrapped together with airy synthesis that lighten up the mood. Accompanied with the unnerving jack of ‘Arsehall’, the final cut of this unholy trinity – Vibert manages to pump the move with a touch more urgency in the drums, all layered with detuned waves that leaves you somewhat out of step as they lap around your ears.
