After a few months out of action Echocord Colour (Luke Hess, Mikkel Metal) get back into gear with a four-track EP from Dutch producer Albert Van Abbe. The Eindhoven artist doesn’t mess about with this one, kicking off Klangbilder with a pounding techno roller that will shift weight on any dancefloor. ‘Klangbilder 1’ (just numbered titles here) also incorporates some horror-movie strings to brilliant effect. Things continue in this vein with the second entry, but flip the record over and we find Van Abbe changing up his style. ‘3’ is a slow, mournful track built on haunting keys, and on the final ‘4’ he strips out the drums altogether for an ambient synth piece that wouldn’t sound out of place on the second half of David Bowie’s Low.
