A) Totem Tube
AAA) Resistor (Digital only)
Renegade Hardware are proud to present their first release of 2015 – three brand new tunes from Slovakia’s Minor Rain.
After issuing tracks on labels as diverse as Dispatch, Med School and Samurai, now the producer comes roaring into the new year with two tracks on wax, plus a bonus digital selection, making up HWARE34. Minor Rain has become known for his deep, sharp and experimental music, with a taste for the different and the unusual. From a background playing piano and saxophone to his adventures with Soundnbeats, Minor Rain is a musician who is always exploring, always expanding his horizons.
You can feel your horizons expanding with the first of the tracks: Totem Tube. From its tribal percussion beginnings, soon morphs out into a stinging, rising thing of beauty. Beats are stripped bare, punching their way straight to the heart. They are surrounded by urgent, working bass runs which are seamlessly incorporated into the track, leaving nothing out and leaving listeners desperate for more. This is deep, strident music which gets better the more you delve into it.
Likewise Deformation, which rises and falls around a more straight up, insistent beat and sparking atmospherics. Minor Rain likes to play around with the tools and elements at his disposal, working and creating something new every time he sits down to make music. This one’ll come and find you if you try to run away.
Finishing up the release we turn to Resistor and the more experimental side of Minor Rains productions. Retaining his precise and deliberate placing of elements Minor Rain weaves together a tense heavily precussive track, which balances tense and calming moods in equal measure. A perfect example that showcases Minor Rains adept understanding of rhythm and musicianship.
Minor Rain proving beyond doubt this year he will become a force to be reckoned with.
