Triple R Friends
- Words: Heath K. Hignight
- Label: Kompakt
Rinehard Riley, a.k.a. Triple R, functions within the Kompakt world as a kind of number one to Captain Wolfgang Voight-stylistically he's got Mike Ink's back, but he's not averse to exercising a little discretion in meting out angular Cologne techno beats. Friends sees Triple R doing just that, including only one Kompakt-licensed track on this continuously mixed 12-track set. Thus, Friends is altogether a warm and friendly slow-techno affair, starting out a bit melodramatic with Metaboman's "Easy Woman (Rogab Wruhme Mix)" and easing into Dialogue ("Gigolistic"), Ada ("Blindhouse"), and later Jeff Samuel and Dntel. Highly recommended.
