D’Marc Cantu’s second release on Drone is an introspective, emotive piece of electro.
With it’s deep pads, ‘Omega Red’ provides the soundtrack to a trek through the snowy wastes, never letting up and calling through the night. Dreaming of a world beyond our own on a journey without end, waking to find fragments of that world still holding on.
In contrast, under his Rival alias Cantu delivers ‘Sustain’ a ferocious track with monotonous drum lines that slowly takes you into the night. Rival has, since it’s inception, been about exploring the limitations of a single, one take session. Taking the principles of a live set and applying them with gear that would ordinarily be left in the studio adds an uncertainty and urgency to the moment that would otherwise not be there.
