Various Triple R: Selection 6

  • Words: Rob Geary
  • Label: Trapez
  • XLR8R Rating: 9/10

Richard Riley Reinhold (a.k.a Triple R) practically defined Cologne’s minimal sound as a producer and Traum/Trapez label owner. His staple Triple R mixes took some critical hits the last few years, but Reinhold responds with an elegant, immaculately machined mix on Selection 6 that never wavers in its quiet intensity, yet takes in the global growth of minimal with ease. To wit: Mihalis Safris’ “R2” is a gorgeous tweak-fest in the Underground Resistance tradition (via his native Greece); Roland Dill’s arty, hectic “Modus Operandy” spins spiky glitch into shuffle gold; and Reggy von Oer’s “Metza” dips into soundtrack strings. Yet each goes smoothly into the mix in classic Trapez style.
