Various Artists Two Point Two 12K
- Words: Heath K. Hignight
- Label: L-ne
This two-disc compilation-the second joint effort from Taylor Deupree's influential 12K and L-ne imprints-provides a glimpse of where both labels are going in the near future. 12K's past emphasis on minimal experimental techno now gives way to a stronger sense of abstract, deconstructed melody (Sawako's "Air.aif" and Komet's "Looping 4=D") and rhythmic invention (Doron Sadja + Motion's "3Small"). On the L-ne side, co-operated with Richard Chartier, Deupree showcases a who's who of academic sound experimentalists and installationists, including Steve Roden, Asmus Tietchens + David Lee Myers, and COH. Challenging and fundamentally austere, Two Point Two foretells complex future releases.
