Raw Hedroom is Gareth William, an English producer who has already recorded on Leftroom and now it’s time for his Trapez debut with this two tracker on vinyl!
“Onorin” is a modern post Chicago-Detroit piece of techno , which works with that kind of understatement that we always loved with techno from either Detroit or Chicago.
A sequence, manipulated /modulated and with a feel for organic funkiness shows itself in the shape of a worm that sometimes breaks through to the surface. In addition to that there is a bit of a psychedelic connotation with vocals repeatedly stating/saying: “On the bed... under the bed”. A sexy and sensual track with a good portion of high tec behind it, since Gareth works with the Lemur polyphonic touch screen that also Daft Punk use when playing live.
On the flipside the track “Only boring people get bored” is one that uses the classic formula or technique to create funk, by grouping small, strange und funny cut up or sequenced sounds next to the kick drum. Midget sounds make it funky. and a deranged down pitched vocal talks along and gives the track a modern and cool Chicago feel!
The first digital bonus track “Scalep” follows in the footsteps of “Only boring people get bored” and has traces of funkiness featured throughout the track.
The second digital bonus track is a remix of “Onorin” by Arjuna Schiks from Amsterdam who started composing and producing when he was 15. He was the winner of the vinylized dance competition for most talented producer award of 2008. His first vinyl Ep was released on All Is One Records and was supported by Dave Clarke, Michel de Hey, Laidback Luke, Isis and more. His “Onorin” remix is a cool combination of understatement combined rhythmically with a nice stop and go motion.
The third digital bonus track comes with a Emerson Todd remix of “Onorin”. Emerson’s remix "Rumpelstilskin" was picked up by many DJs and his releases on Dirty Bird triggered tidal waves. His massive remix of "Onorin" will set a mark also on Trapez.
Release date: 12 January 2009
