- Several months after their impressive debut, Yumé Records returns with a three-track EP that stays true to its London roots. Claus Voigtmann is one half of the team behind Toi Toi, a party that, since 2010, has established itself a reputation as one of the capital's go-to spots for forward-thinking house and techno. On the flip, arguably the city's foremost purveyor of late-night oddities, fabric resident Craig Richards, pitches in with a rare remix.
Regulars at Toi Toi will know Voigtmann's sets for their meandering, minimal aesthetic, which is reflected on The Interlude Archives EP. Prominent basslines underpin both tracks, allowing Voigtmann to experiment with varying textures and techniques. "Fingerpointing," the more stripped-back of the two, makes a feathery atmosphere of garbled mutterings and distant knocks. "The Good Ones Go" is more cunning, masquerading initially as a slice of sharp-edged techno, before a lengthy, improvised jazz breakdown reveals Voigtmann's musical side. Both would fit well in the nether regions of an A:rpia:r or Ricardo Villalobos set. The same could be said of the flip, which sees Richards update "The Good Ones Go" to suit his tougher, trippier tastes. With the kind of bassline that'll stay with you for days, his remix rounds out a head-turning follow-up from the Yumé camp.
