Review

After releasing the 1rst Trenton record Samuel Rouanet and Christophe Clause aka Reynold and Aspro are back. This record is the result of their first collaboration as producers and also a celebration of the 10th release of Trenton records. Here they managed to create a subtle mixture of Aspro’s strong bass line and tight grooves and Reynold’s soulful chords and minimal beats!!! On the A-side the track Angle starts with a rolling strong bass line coupled with a very “break beat” oriented rhythm. Still a strong straight 4/4 kick is here to support the techno pulse of the track. The all thing is enveloped by Detroit chord’s style that goes on and on… The B-side is deeper… a beautiful chord sequence surrounded by click & cuts sounds and a groovy bass line. Soft and forward at the same time, this tune is probably the best work that both of those guys accomplished so far… The symbiosis is there and it is 9mn of pure ecstasy!!!

TREN010 in the media

DJ MAG 01.2006: “Previous Trenton releases have never quite achieved the same high levels as other Berlin labels like Mobilee or Sender, but ‘Angle’ heralds a change. The work of Samuel Rouanet and Christophe Clause, ‘Angle’ is a crunchy 4/4 meets break beat track, its heavy, harsh drums and grungy bass as visceral as anything Peter Grummich or Shitkatapult are capable of. On ‘Curve’, they change tact and maintain a straight dub techno backing, and the combination of niggling 303 signatures and epic, Vangelis-like synths is irresistible.”

GROOVE MAG. (GER) 03/04.2006: “ Samuel Rouanet und Christophe Clause versuchen hier in einer Art Geometrie-Nachhilfe den Unterschied von Winkel und Kurve verständlich zu machen. Im „Angle“ schaukeln sich die Klangreflexionen zu düsteren Basswellen auf. Die einschwebenden Flächen und das laserartige Sound-Geflimmer mitsamt der sperrig rumpelnden Breakbeat-Perkussion verschwimmen zu diabolischen Grimassen. Die „Curve“ hingegen gebärdet sich in einer runderen Deepness, Clicks & Cuts verlieren sich im Hall, die Chords sind von einer freundlichen Helligkeit beherrscht. Das Runde besiegt quasi das Eckige.”
