Powerplay: Juras Lietus – Dark Frank (Wavereform) // 19.06.2014

Jūras Lietus, a 25 year-old Latvian producer from Riga whose mysterious origins in this out-of-the-way locale may surprise listeners, but whose sound fits very well into the label’s mission to reform the sound sphere with simple and elegant tracks that demand attention and bring unknown talent deserved notice. Lietus wastes no time in showing off his developed dub techno style on “Dark Frank ” as the bold, well-defined contours of the bottom end are contrasted with gentler ambient textures in the opening.
