Tracklist 12″: A1. Linium / 05:17 A2. Lavandula (Mattheis Remix) / 06:02 B1. Lavandula / 04:44 B2. Silene / 05:25 B3. Santolina / 04:51 After more than a decade of deep, expansive productions on labels such as Detroit Underground and CPU, Annie Hall arrives on MUSAR for a record typically rich in tex- ture and understated grooves. Opening track ‘Linium’ immediately seduces listeners with a complex drum pattern that somehow feels spacious, subtly twisting and turning it’s way around Hall’s analogue world. Dutch artist Mattheis maintains this understated feel but adds a soft, compelling kick in response on his suspenseful remix of ‘Lavandula’. The original, moodier version of this cut the ! ! New Release Information follows to open the B side, gradually erupting around a killer distorted bassline. The EP continues to hit a more urgent note with the tense machinations of ‘Silene’, where dense layers of stuttering, frenetic drums interweave with Hall’s trademark, melancholy keys. The record concludes on a weightless, transcendent note with ‘San- tolina’, taking each visceral element featured thus far and slowing each down, with af- fecting results. Indebted to vintage electro and IDM, Hall’s music is no throwback, always looking for- ward and moving dancefloors in the most unexpected ways. !
