Claro Intelecto Warehouse Sessions
- Words: Tim Saputo
- Label: Modern Love
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
Over the past three years, Manchester’s Mark Stewart (a.k.a. Claro Intelecto) has been releasing a steady stream of lovely dub techno. Last year’s Metanarrative floated in on a rain cloud with its lush pads, whispers, and ambient passages. Yet Stewart has also been pumping out a series of Modern Love 12” singles devoted to hard-as-nails warehouse music. This CD neatly collects those six volumes alongside one new track, documenting a love of classic techno. Though melody is largely removed from the equation, each track is a sublime crusher colored by layers of subtle funk and pummeling bass. Warehouse Sessions is one intense album—“New Dawn” could have soundtracked the last 15 minutes of Terminator 2.
