Triptil – Dute Vino [Otaku Records] OTK002
A young computerized person, someone deeply embedded into technology is a brief description of Otaku. First established as an event organizer in London, Otaku has been keen towards minimal focused events with artists that do a lot with fewer sounds. To make the entire concept complete Otaku also launched as a vinyl only record label, pushing the boundaries of minimal music beyond our wildest imagination. With a solid first signing, Egal 3 aka Vid, has set a really high bar in terms of the musical output on Otaku.
Otaku comes out swinging once more. Their second release, “Dute Vino” is an impressive three tracker signed by the outbound Romanian, Triptil. Currently residing in London, Triptil is a complete artist, always improving as a producer and as a DJ. His releases have found their ways into the DJ bags of the most influential artists in the minimal/techno circuit, as his musical output choices have been high on ranked labels such as Sleep Is Commercial or Body Parts Recordings.
Starting things off on Triptil – “Dute Vino” EP is the title track entitled “Dute Vino“; the first bullet of the EP is a bass-centric track with a roaring bass line, making it the focus element of the track. The track can take the shape of a tribal incantation as the vibrant bass line is in parallel with a high-frequency kick drum. On the flipside, “Perpedes” maintains the intensity of the title track and keep the audience engaged with a mesmerizing loop. The overlapping bass line choruses and glitches of broken snare sounds, similar to nature call section the track in two scenes, similar to a theatre play. Continuing the B-side is “Colatterrall” that takes the form of an after effect track. With a more nocturnal and spooky feeling attached to it, the track. The track centres on a rusty like violin sounds, offering the track a creepy lurking sensation that sneaks up on you at random times.
