Kent producer Linear B has recently dropped his new, seventh, EP, Finding Rainbows on his own Rainbow Tipi label. Treading the line between house and techno has always been the way Linear B has operated and in the past he’s had support from DVS1, Truncate, Noncompliant and others.
The four track EP opens with the brilliant title track, this dark slab of techno, with a nod towards acid and electro stylings accompanying the husky baritone of the vocals. The feeling of anxiety continues into the bubbling loops of Bugaboo, with its spoken word lyrics, while Tiny Heartbeats has this stripped down, percussive, almost early hip-hop feel about it. The EP closes with the claustrophobic Jericho Horns, a suitable finisher to this dark but appealing record.
