Review: This fourth album from experimental techno producer Kangding Ray (real name David Letellier) is based around a loose but intriguing concept. According to the producer, the 12 tracks were arranged to form four distinct musical arcs - one for each side of the double gatefold vinyl release. This compositional tool gives the album a rising and falling feel, as crunchy, distorted, pulsating dancefloor techno (see "Evento", "Blank Empire" and "Another Decay") gives way to spooky IDM ("Transitional Ballistics"), stargazing electronica ("Apogee", "History of Obscurity") and crystalline ambience ("The River"), before beginning the cycle all over again. The themes can be distilled further, too, with Solens Arc coming on like an extended battle between the contrasting forces of darkness and light.

Azores (12")
Cat: FIGURE X13. Rel: 22 Oct 19
  1. 22 Halo (7:31)
  2. Polygon (5:09)
  3. De Tomaso Pantera (6:15)
  4. Azores (4:25)
Review: David Letellier is in fine form on his latest outing under the Kangding Ray alias. While still inventive and left-of-centre in tone, the four tracks showcased on "Azores" are far less experimental in tone than some of his releases. Of course, there's still a trip into angular, introspective and quietly melodious IDM - see the title track - but for the most part the EP is focused firmly on the dancefloor. Opener "22 Halo" offers a perfect balance between broken techno rhythms and shimmering futurist electronics, "Polygon" is a panicked, intense and mind-altering club thumper and "De Tomaso Pantera" is a wild tribal techno ride through metallic motifs and droning, didgeridoo-style hooks.

Review: For the first time since establishing the Kangding Ray project back in 2006, David Lettelier appears on the acclaimed Stroboscopic Artefacts imprint. The transfer seems to have inspired him artistically, too. While previous albums for Raster-Norton were principally concerned with blurring the boundaries between club-ready techno, off-kilter IDM and worthy experimentation, Hyper Opal Mantis looks much more closely at ghostly ambient, industrial and Electronic Body Music. Of course, while the influences may be broader, Lettellier's "high definition" approach to sound design and production is still present throughout. In other words, it's very much a Kangding Ray record, he's just moved the goalposts a bit.

Caos Y Orden Superior
  1. Pfirter - "Caos Y Orden Superior" (feat Xiantek)
  2. Kangding Ray - "Wars"
Review: Juan Pablo Pfirter has garnered a reputation for big-room techno through a slew of peak time releases via CLR, Stockholm LTD, Figure and his own MindTrip Music. But his Stroboscopic Artefacts releases have - by Pfirter standards - remained a little more restrained. "Caos Y Orden Superior" featuring the so far unknown Xiantek, maintains Pfirter's trademark low end, but the Argentinean opts for a locked groove over peaks and troughs, and although synths, white-noise and crunched hi-hats still feature, it's more likely to be played by Marcel Dettmann than Len Faki. Kanding Ray's emotive "Wars" incorporates Moderat styled guitars, industrial-tinged white noise and dissonant synths; all of which are at the mercy of a hoovering sidechain.
