Last week, esteemed Istanbul DJ/Producers Mutlu San & Batu Güler aka Bärtaub dropped their new 12″ single Marble on the ever salient Belgian label R & S. It follows up their contribution to that label’s RV Tracks Vol 3 compilation back in February with the minimal and bass focused ‘Archivolt. Here the titular track is underscored by its smooth glassy vibe and machine like functionality creating the platform for San and Güler to create analog powered rhythmic complexity and the finest of textures. The swing filled groove as well as the deftly crafted atmosphere allow what is essentially a compact and busy track the space needed to achieve its requisite assuredness and a rarified energy. Marble (b/w ‘Ya Betta Jam’) is out now digitally here with the vinyl available on November 1.
