Seuil makes a storming entrance into the offbeat world of Supplement Facts with his ‘Ultravision’ EP. His immaculate track record for house music that pierces the soul with its energy and drama remains firmly in tact with yet another dream collaboration with dOP vocalist Jaw.
Parisian Seuil has fast become a pillar of the deep house and techno community. The innate organic quality that courses through his productions is allied with an ever-evolving style, always rich in substance, drive and atmosphere. ‘Ultravision’ is no exception. The mesmeric progression of liquefied bleeps, deep chords, and truncated rhythms is heightened by the poignant, husky drawl of Jaw that bleeds through this enveloping track. The ‘Dub Mix’ allows the bubbling percussive energy to shine through in a dubbed out, darkly populated soundscape.
On the flip ‘In The Moon’ is a moody tech masterpiece of floating grooves and creepy FX. Breathy vocal snippets intercept with notions of mortality as Seuil traverses rusty sonic terrains and upholds his ability to feed both the soul and the feet. Even when stripped back to its barest bones ‘In The Moon’ captivates with a driving energy punctuated by crisply formulated drums and a sparse bass line bounce.
Guy Gerber’s imprint Supplement Facts thinks outside the box when it comes to dealing out the techno goods. Based in Israel but with a focus on worldwide exposure, the ethos ‘to define is to limit’ runs through every release. Already nestled in the label’s repertoire, dOP have been ransacking venues with their improvised chaos ever since their monster album ‘Greatest Hits’ dropped on Circus Company last year. Seuil & dOP together possess a natural collective creativity previously seen in the majestic ‘New York’, which made it onto the Watergate vol.6 compilation and the dark, jazzy sleaze of ‘Prostitute’ on Eklo.
