Ben Gibson and Fundamental Interaction return to their collaborative project entitled Dyad with four dark and uncompromising techno productions this December.
Individually Ben Gibson is known for releases on Perc Trax and Axis, whilst Fundamental Interaction, real name Mark Asbrey, is known for appearances on MM Audio and CLFT. Together they launched Dyad in 2014, the joint production project and label that quickly earned support from the upper echelons of techno, such as Ben Sims, Len Faki and DVS-1. Since then they’ve gone on to release music on Don’t Be Afraid and Tsunami, as well as launch a secondary imprint for like-minded artists called Common Purpose Series. They now return to the Dyad label with four more brutal cuts.
A collection of slowly pulsing drones and haunting atmospheres evolve to make ‘Akhoe (Version)’ an intriguing opener to the release whilst ‘Akhoe’ follows up with a pounding kick, rolling hi hats and rim shots which add a dancefloor context to the hypnotic ambiences.
‘Tacenda’ entices the listener with a mesmerising synth riff that expands over the course of the track as the filter opens and more layers are subtly revealed during a relentless percussive composition. ‘Structural Response’ has an entrancing, progressive hook laid over synthesised polyrhythms clouded with ethereal overtones bringing an exciting close to the release.
