Visionquest’s Special Editions series returns this July with RILLS’ ‘You’ll Never Be Alone’, comprising four originals from the Italian artist.
Turin’s RILLS has been steadily gaining a strong following over the decade with his tracks being played the likes of Ar:Pi:Ar’s Raresh, Daniel Bell, Dyed Soundorom and Cassy, and finding a home on imprints such as 8Bit, In Haus Wax and Esperanza. Here we see RILLS join the roster of Visionquest’s vinyl only offshoot label, Special Editions, following material from Jorge Savoretti, Konrad Black and Quilla.
‘Zorlak’ opens the package and sets the tone of raw and dubby via murky atmospherics, swirling chord sequences and a swinging rhythmic drive, ‘Yoda’ follows and retains a similarly swung drum groove whilst introducing spaced out, unfolding pads across the composition.
‘Stranger Freaks’ kicks off the B-Side of the release, stripping things back to bumpy drums, heady resonant synth swells and hypnotic tension buildings drones before ‘Paper Beatz’ rounds out the package with smooth deep pads, modulating synth stabs and shuffling hats.
RILLS’ ‘You’ll Never Be Alone’ is out on Visionquest Special Editions 7th July 2017.
