Eduardo De La Calle – The Methodical Machines 2×12″ – Cadenza

R641165014185671314529.jpegFuriously prolific, Eduaro De La Calle seems to be in a bit of a personal renaissance. From his roots in performing over the past couple decades, he has been establishing a language in minimal house that’s aligned him with some of the sounds that helped launch Luciano’s Cadenza imprint in 2003, and now underlines a landmark 99th release.

While this mini-album doesn’t break any new ground as compared with his recent works – his notably austere works for his own Analog Solutions imprint and his party rocking maximalist approach for Endless both stretch his palette a bit further, this doublepack does well to integrate his approach. At once improvisational and structured, his variation on narrow themes is sometimes reminiscent of Carl Craig’s signature tension builders, this approach shines through on The Demigod’s control. The emphasis on micro-variation is and extemporization shows on White Noise For James, and a naturalistic approach is on offer in the duet for solo piano and drum machine that closes out the release with “Concierto De Aranjuez.”
