On Linear Reflection, talented Swiss techno producer Isolated Lines offers up four amazing shades of music, an EP taking in influences from a number of contemporary genres exploring textured industrial atmospheres, balancing solid rhythmics throughout and solid dancefloor beats. Although Linear Reflection is his first release for Creaked, Isolated Lines has made music for other record labels such an EP on Donor's Miniscule and remixes for Fifth Wall and Flashcut Records.
"Drift" opens the EP with subtle ambient atmospheres, metallic sounds, digital lazer noises and non understandable background vocals giving the impression of being surrounded by ghosts, whilst "January The 1st" plunges into deep dub techno and heavy dark ambiance with sophisticated rhythms always keeping an intense straight forward dancefloor spirit.
On "Sidestep", Isolated Lines keeps his heavy syncopated drums but adds more groove, massive claps and percussive house beats, Dubbed out synth melodies intertwine to provide one of the sexier tracks on the EP. Finally, "Dam" turns off slow anxious rhythms with heavy and distorted bass textures to reach a majestic melodic ascension.
With this stellar EP, Isolated Lines marks a slice of his signature sound for Creaked. A strong debut that proves without doubt the future of Swiss techno is in good hands. This is just the beginning.
