B R 1 0 0 2 - Auger
Italian producers Bruno Di Berardino and Bruno Ruggieri published their first release as B R 1 0 0 2 on Monolith Records in 2015, and have since been actively involved in making themselves known on a techno scene through appearances on Variant Electronic, Specrtal Rebel, WarinD and Subsist. Auger is their fourth solo EP up to date, a fourth contribution to shaping awareness of their style - a rough and unpolished productions of industrial techno.
Aptly named 132 BPM opener Anvil let's you know what's up from second one - hammering, distorted kicks are accompanied by a cold, oscillating bassline, a few non-overlaping sets of different hats, reverberated metallic stabs and walls of sheer noise. Charmingly named Hate rises two BPM points up and utilizes same-cloth-woven 4x4 kicks, leisurely stretched sirens, dense, noise-shaped syncopated hats and spacious background soundscapes. Startling number Auger returns to 132 BPM and kicks off with slowly rising ambiance being suddenly pierced by processed, repeated samples of screaming, thudding toms, tremors of a distorted jack hammer (hell, everything is distorted here), tortured acidic bassline and dry 16x4 hats. In his remix of Auger, D. Carbone rises the tempo to 143 BPM and slowly unravels his vision of the track - a steady 4x4 drum pattern, two layers of half-bar shifted and densely running dry hats, his signature, straight-out-acid-shaped bassline, an even more frequently repeating screaming sample, and resonant, spacious droning.
