The enigmatic Dutch duo exhibit their mastery of the minimal, creating an absolute monster formed of a few (skilfully selected) elements.
TWR72 (The Walk and Rogerseventytwo in singular form), having snuck under the radar since their genesis in 2004 with a clutch of remixes, prove they are a force to be reckoned with in their second bona fide release.
Following on from their meaty Shock EP and already championed by the likes of Laidback Luke and Erol Alkan, TWR72’s Tunnel/Schizophrenia is the latest cut from the up and coming Instant Replay label (follow the link for a free DJ mix – oh, we spoil you).
The first tune Tunnel is as claustrophobic as its title suggests, densely reverberating, but in the best possible way. A single metallic beat reverbs and bends upon itself into a noisy grinding hook, which gradually builds up to claxon-esque sonic proportions, fizzy hi-hats, and then sweet, sweet release. Warmed up? Good, there’s plenty more to come…
Tunnel will happily set up camp at the junction between the “catch-up drinks” and the “we mean business” phases of the night. About 2:13 am.
