Tessela - Bottom Out (R&S Records)

Tessela returns to R&S Records with the long overdue follow-up to last year’s ‘Rough 2’. On title track ‘Bottom Out’ he strips the sonic layers right back, but don’t be fooled by it’s skeletal construction, this is a deadly club record when deployed at the right time; its bare bones structure manages to retain enough tense energy within its fidgety percussion and squirming acid flourishes to carry it off. The title track is accompanied by a tough, rolling remix from Kowton as well as the sprawling, beatless groove of ‘Total Music’.
