Dutch sound artist Albert van Abbe now joins the raster family, with an unexpected collaboration with founder Olaf Bender aka Byetone titled DUAL. Having spent time working side by side in ’s-Hertogenbosch at the Willem Twee Studio, the result of their collaboration is both smooth and haptic, rounding out as an expressive camaraderie between the two veteran producers. Jovial and innocent, DUAL alludes to the experimental research process of finding common ground. Fully embracing the haphazard richness of live recordings, the result is a remarkable fusion of contrasting outputs; intricate collaborative efforts and byproducts woven together with an eager indifference towards expectation.

The artists embrace a skewed navigation through pronounced highlights, intricate lulls and moments of temporal stasis, intermittently punctuated as a means of intentionally avoiding notions of rigid perfection. With ‘real-time’ approach directing DUAL’s creation, the pair effectively shies away from any meticulous planning, and the music runs free and negates any rigid parameters one might have expected. Quirky titles exude the collaged form of the release, and underline its innocent charm. As a whole, DUAL focuses on the creative process and fully engages listeners with its own dialogue, though it is very outspoken, at times even abrasive.
