Dijkhuis/Dijkhuis #2

 

For its 2nd release Night Gallery presents the second and final 12" in the two-part series from Dijkhuis, an established artist still letting his music speak for itself. The 3-tracks on Dijkhuis #2 continue the same diversity that marked #1.

The release opens with a tip of the hat to Detroit techno stalwarts both in name and in sound. Underground Persistence provides stuttered 808 percussion and a searing acid line before reveling in the type of ebullient synth melodies and heavenly choral pads that cemented how soulful techno music can be.

Salt Caramel goes for a classic house bent, using organ stabs, tough-nosed bass line, steel plated snare and clipped vocal sample to lure you in before bringing on heavy Roland SH-101 synth action. The Curtains In Your Bombshelter ends the release the way the first 12" started, ratcheting up the intensity with dry sounding poly synth work and modular synthesis that creates an evocative arrangement fitting of its apocalyptic title and a place in a John Carpenter film.
