Roche delivers the latest installment in Solos Records digital release series. Poised between two of the mighty legacies of Detroit, ‘Space Blue’ takes the Dilla touch to an extended, 3 Chairs style house meditation on rhythm modulation, making Gottsching cumulii showersynth shards.
Space Blue: the title is a hint, a certain cold outer space melancholy which perforates the warmth of a shifting upright bass sample that underpins the track. Cosmic jazz tones for mental therapy. Or, maybe it’s it’s the trace of blue light in a club that catches the trails of smoky wonderment wafting upwards.
The flipside to this stunning piece is a remix by CB Radio, who strips away the A-side’s gaseous atmospheres for a physical disco house flex’n’bump refix that’s suitable for riding the back alleys of the city of the future.
