Over the past 14 years, London's Oliver Ho aka Raudive has gathered a worldwide following with his research into deep techno, through his legendary Meta label and with his unique DJ gigs from New York to Berlin to Tokyo. Introducing the Raudive alias, he created a reduced, sexy, dancefloor-centered wave of greatness for labels from Drumcode to Cocoon. This sound turned out to be highly attractive for the DJs to play and for the girls and boys to dance to. The unparalleled appeal of his beats left the usual minimal competitors sounding rather dull. Thus, Raudive quickly became the blueprint of techno modernism with one of today's most influential genre-bending production styles. With his Cone and Paper EPs, he is now a key artist of the ever-brilliant Macro family, and just having launched his own new Wires imprint, the man is more than on fire. Forming the hallmark of the Raudive saga, Macro unleashes the highly-anticipated debut album, Chamber Music. This album is both claustrophobic in sound design, reminiscent of the dark and sweaty concrete club spaces this music inhabits, and carries acoustic qualities of induced instrumental experimentalism. Bitches Brew-voodoo reeds, New York no wave voices and European avant strings spin a mesmerizing, dark patina around the ultra-sexy year-3000-rhythms. No wonder there's huge DJ support all across the board -- from Miss Kittin to Surgeon to Sven Väth to Jeff Mills. Massive, deep edge and one of 2010's finest albums, so far.
