DoubtingThomas "Your Name Here"

Rob Chadwick, Jonny Cade, and Brett Sinclair are the minds behind a new dance label called Catch, and their first release comes from Frenchman Aurelien Riviere (a.k.a. DoubtingThomas). "Your Name Here"—taken from his upcoming The Fall EP (out on October 7 as a vinyl package, with digital formats arriving on October 21)—swells from a few percussive flourishes and pitch-shifted vocal samples into an off-kilter, organic slab of techno. With a refined amount of seemingly random guitar and beat seasoning over the main drum structure, DoubtingThomas invites replayability and elevates the cut above predictable, stubbornly minimal artists working in similar territory.
