Umut presents: Disprove – Stratos / Triflux [MLS014]
After last years ‘Hard Problem/ Automatic’ the Italian Stallion Disprove returns to MethLab and has some fast sonics in stock! Again a single and again excellent work.
I take the right to divide the release into a light and a dark section where ‘Stratos’ takes the light part. Here the graceful chime of the intro sparkles an oppressive charm a la Freddy Kruger and together with the gentle waves of the pulsating chords it is merely a precursor for a roaring sea of syncopated snares and crazy melodies.
The b-side, Triflux, is no exception in terms of craziness and speed as well. But here the sound image is carried by a darker, much more haunting atmosphere and the alarming sound from the intro evolves into a meandering and squirming behemoth that tears you into a percussive abyss.
I have definitely faced these tracks with certain expectations and Disprove hasn’t lost any ground in this affair. MethLab is simply always on point and the artists manage to constantly live up to the label’s identity. It is really enjoyable to watch the evolution of this project in its entirety.
