Federsen returns to Fifth Interval for another sublime installment of dance floor friendly dub-techno. Dewpoint is an altogether tighter affair when compared to the label’s first release, Point Reyes.
The drums are taut and razor-sharp, propelling the listener effortlessly through a dense fog of ferric clouds, swelling to fill the outer-reaches of the echo chamber. A highly polished metallic production style that can be compared to some of Andy Stott’s early and classic works.
Tomas Rubek remixes Dewpoint for the B-side, remaining faithful to the original track’s structure but viewing it through a tinted lens. Dewpoint’s chords become iridescent, kick drums fall into a straighter pattern and are backed by further dusty percussion, shifting the original into spheres inhabited by the likes of Rod Modell and Fluxion.
