Genre/Influences: Techno, experimental, IDM.
Background/Info: Alex Tsiridis aka Rhyw strikes back with the second part of “Cave Walls”. The first part was also released on Avian. We get 5 new songs.
Content: The opening cut is an experimental sound collage and a kind of intro to this EP. We next move into dark, technoid grooves. It’s an intelligent and well-crafted production mixed with a few more experimental treatments.
+ + + : I’m not used to hear cheap ‘techno’ music made in Berlin and Rhyw reveals a minimal approach driven by great sound treatments and a dark sphere. There are several great and danceable pieces featured here.
– – – : I would like to hear the tracks even more minimal and IDM-like.
Conclusion: Both “Cava Walls”-EP’s can be seen as a full length album revealing an interesting techno sound from the Berlin.
Best songs: “Happening RN”, “All Structures Are Unstable”.
