Review

Cute is back! Mo’s Ferry’s sublabel fenou returns after a one year break with a new limited 10“ vinyl edition. The first releases (almost out of stock) realize collector’s price and show a path to a universe of experimental, minimal pop.Dapayk’s „dehalledretro“ is probably known as part of his liveset. The calm and reduced, but groovy track emerged from a bunch of loops he’s playing with during his performances. It’s a proof that shows: minimal is not always made of clean, sterile sounds and dry wood-like tones. Dredl Kibosh’s flipside „i found you“ is spinning around broken beats and intelligent grooves, beyond the klikkaklakka standards. It’s a link between four-to-the-floor and downtempo-breakbeat… very soulful.

FENOU04 in the media

freshguide (GER): “ Das mir musikalisch liebste Mo’s Ferry Kindlein meldet sich nach einem einjährigen Frühling-, Sommer-, Herbst- und Winterschlaf angenehm dezent und gewohnt filigran zurück. Das ambient gehaltene „Dehalledretro“ von Dapayk hypnotisiert nicht nur beim Blick auf die sich drehende Platte. Morgenstundenloops umfangen einen mit betörenden Liebkosungen. Dredl Kibosh beendet seine Suche nach dem jenseitigen Sound über gebrochenen Beats auf der B-Seite mit einem überaus beglückt wirkenden „I found you“.Fh”

Jeff Milligan: “nice to hear some intricate beats on "i found you". many ways to contextualize this one in the mix. ”

Jeff Milligan: “a nice and complicated listen for an experienced listener. i love this one. think i already said it. ;)”

Karotte: “schöne dapayk nummer für mein vorprogramm. schönes teil.”

Laurent Garnier: “lovely deepness on both sides will play on my early sets ”

Resident Advisor Net: “This is the fourth release on the Mo’s Ferry sublabel Fenou, with the previous three fast becoming collector’s items. Pressed on 10” vinyl and limited to only 500 copies (the first three were 1000), each record is serial numbered and comes beautifully presented with stylish artwork. Your NYC and Berlin artist friends will be impressed as they peruse your record collection, but of course when it really comes down to it, records are meant to be heard not seen thus all this posturing won't mean shit if it don’t sound good, ya dig? Fortunately, Dapayk and Dredl Kibosh deliver sublimely. Fenou describe their output as “cute minimal electronica” and Dapayk’s ‘Dehalledretro’ fits the bill nicely. It has a cinematic quality to it, evoking a contemplative scenario out of Twin Peaks. With a slow peaceful groove, it bristles with warmth, leaving you with a sense of serenity. If you are familiar with Dapayk’s live set you’ll recognize elements at play here, as the track is built from loops he’s played during performances. On the flipside, ‘I Found You’ is an equally calming down-tempo number, the male delivery of the only line in the song (‘I found you’) layered over a bevy of broken beats and intelligent sequences. The addition of a monster (yet soothing) bassline which pokes its head out every now and again complements proceedings nicely. All in all Fenou04 is a record that I would be proud to put on display to friends of all ilk, whether they be artist snobs, IDM snobs or simply those who appreciate fine music. Words / Angus Dawson”
