Rinzen and Evan Casey land on Parquet with a magical, ‘Fractal’
It was obvious from his start that Rinzen is primed to lead the next generation of underground greats. He already earned a co-sign from Giorgio Moroder on his very first release, and since being picked up by the mau5trap crew, has been able to spread his musical vision across the states and more recently, Europe. Leaning toward the melodic side of house and techno, it comes as no surprise that leaders in this realm are beginning to recognize the burgeoning talent. Thus, his follow-up to an exploratory, tribal-inspired “Temple” on Chapter 24 records is a signing onto Solée’s iconic imprint, Parquet.
“Fractal” is a combination of Rinzen’s talents, and that of of his friend and colleague Evan Casey, resident of the famed Desert Hearts brand. It comes packaged in shadowy overtones, with sinister melodies and bursts of cunning arpeggios creating a feeling of angst in the listeners. Consistency is clearly the collaborator’s modus operandi in this production; rather than including a larger-than-life drop, “Fractal” drives the floor forward at a steady pace, finding impact in its Recondite-esque minimalism. The record is truly class — a standard we’ve come to expect from anything with Rinzen’s name on it.
