R&S welcomes 'Also' to the family, AKA the pairing of Appleblim and Second Storey for their excellent debut album, combined from their critically acclaimed Trilogy of EP's. Ever since they first met and bonded over a shared love of machine rhythms and sleek electronic grooves, the pair have been hard at work on pushing their creative boundaries to the limit, never content to take the easy route - as Laurie explains "if that means broken rhythms, and untraditional melodies then so be it. There's so many people making sonically 'correct' or refined 4x4 music, we just wanted to explore everything other than that, whilst still keeping the dance floor moving." These heavy studio / live loose jams sessions have borne truly verdant musical fruit inspired as much by classic R&S alumni from Aphex Twin to Blawan and the Detroit axis of Carl Craig and Juan Atkins. The album drips with uptempo cyborg funk, heavyweight bass and bleeping synth squiggles, pulsing subs and swooning pads. Arpemonger is an exclusive track to the album that sees Also stretch their classic IDM influences into a lush, soulful, futuristic five minutes that finishes the album in style. ALSO is pan genre, pan generational, emotive electronic music at it's best. Truly something special and a fine addition to R&S rich heritage of forward thinking dancefloor sonic artistry.
