Loco Dice 7 Dunham Place
- Words: Janet Tzou
- Label: Desolat
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
It’s always interesting to see what non-Americans think of Gotham, and for six months, Dusseldorf’s Dice Corleone and Desolat partner Martin Buttrich moved their label to a dumpy loft in Brooklyn and made techno music. From 7 Dunham Place, NYC gets framed in sonic shots that are more wistful and upbeat than gritty–something other Brooklynites might take issue with. 7 Dunham Place moves largely away from the Locos’ house stylings: Think Basic Channel minimalism meeting lush, melancholy notes, and you’ve pretty much got it. Clear, quiet beat lines and reverb punctuate tracks like the lovely “Black Truffles in the Snow,” displaying Corleone’s refined understanding of the dancefloor. Here’s hoping the duo will return permanently someday.
