Image: 1593979 With a current knack of attracting some of the electronic music scenes’ most revered talent to the label (see recent releases from Laurent Garnier, Luke Vibert and Losoul), it’s with open arms then that Hypercolour welcome Seth Troxler to the fold, bringing with him Phil Moffa in this new collaborative effort. Seth needs little introduction, suffice to say his previous releases on labels like Crosstown Rebels and Wolf & Lamb (amongst others) has shone like stars, and Phil Moffa comes with a very decent pedigree and studio prowess that has seen him previously team up with the likes of DJ Spider and Anthony Parasole, as well as running the Butcha Sound studios in NYC.

‘Blue Rawls’ builds broodingly, a basic kick and güiro combination beat incessantly against the dramatic and chaotic sheets of dense pads and analog wizardry. As though the heavens open, a operatic vocal sings from up high, whilst Hitchcockian strings swirl around, ping ponging the track’s sentiments wildly from dark to light.

On the flip, ‘Meet The Butcha’ is science fiction techno, pure and simple. Swinging drum patterns, perpetual claps and feverish hat work nail the energy levels, whilst classic 90’s techno tropes are woven into the arrangement to produce a track that sounds so fresh yet reassuringly familiar. It’s basically a techno bomb, in other words. Troxler & Moffa get busy of the FX, warping and morphing the otherworldly synths to produce a colorful and kaleidoscopic trip to distant planets.

‘Rogue Music’ kicks off another strong year for Hypercolour, with the standard being set high with forthcoming musical contributions from the likes of Kerrier District, House Of Black Lanterns, J. Wiltshire, Dense & Pika and A Sagittariun. As for Troxler & Moffa, further studio endeavors are expected soon, both in collaboration and separately, as well as packed DJ schedules and spit roasting (and we mean Seth’s Smokey Tails BBQ joint in London, thanks very much).
