"Hypercolour unearth another hotly-tipped talent for our latest release, this time in the form of Philippe Autuori. Philippe may only have a handful of releases to his name (notably on Poker Flat's Vol. 5 compilation, as well as contributions to French labels Battle and Dialect), but he's been spinning in his native South Montpelier district, and his adopted Berlin home. '7 Peanuts,' featuring the vocals of his Autuori friend Thomas Myers, is a woozy, darkly-tinged lurcher, with stripped-back beats and disorientating bass slurs providing a sinister backdrop for Myers' oddball lyrics. It's remixed by Nic Fanciulli and Andy Chatterley in their Skylark guise, where the pair beef up the kicks and inject a few sweet melodic flutters between the grooves. In a slight departure from their previous work, the pair's mix offers stylish techno thrills alongside that all-important dancefloor pulse. Meanwhile, 'Redemption' returns to Autuori's lop-sided minimalism, this time working a propulsive hi-hat pattern over scraping, atonal organs and snatches of weirdo vox. Like '7 Peanuts,' it's engineered for the foggiest corners of the dancefloor, and is ideally experienced at a time when you know you probably should have gone home. Rounding off the package, 'Shenoda' turns out a deeper, heavier rework of 'Redemption.' Taking his cue from the digital tribalism of nu-housers like Andomat 3000, 'Shenoda' tweaks the freak factor on the sharply-pickled vocal, transforming Philippe's moribund original into a straight-up club winner."
