Having previously released tracks via Hieroglyphic Being's Mathematics imprint and Los Angeles label 100% Silk, San Francisco-based producer Roche will next land on Icee Hot with his "Depths" b/w "Seers" 12". The upcoming record is set to see Roche drop off two elongated jaunts into hardware techno, with the a-side clocking in at over 11 minutes, while the b-side lands just short of a 10-minute run. Furthermore, "Depths" is said to take shape as "an enticingly tripped-out journey... full of swirling synths and twisting techno rhythms," while "Seers" brings the effort "back to Earth with its snapping snares and insistently funky bassline."
Roche's next outing will arrive in digital and vinyl form via Icee Hot (a label, we should point out, is co-run by XLR8R editor Shawn Reynaldo) on September 22. Before then, a preview stream for "Depths" b/w "Seers" can be heard below.
