Phantom Power - Patterns (Clicktracks)

Best known for his role as François K’s engineer and as a producer of techy material, it is fitting that Rob Rives drops his debut LP of Phantom Power material on Clicktracks, the techno imprint that is part of FK’s mighty Wave family. Patterns sums up the musical content pretty well, with synths, keys and drum lines painting the pretty musical pictures. It is a clubfloor album at the end of the day and features notable floor movers such as the trippy Space In Your Face, a punishing number entitled Acid Über Alles and the rolling A Dollar & A Dream (Mix 1 & 2 edit). This techy album packs a considerable of punch, due to Rives’s skill at creating Patterns and his Phantom Powers in the studio.
