Rain Dog - Two Words
For Samuel Evans, or Rain Dog, creating this album was a vast experiment to combine different attempts of blending more traditional elements of song writing and composition with the more contemporary influences of modern electronic dance and bass music, all within the confines of his computer and chair…

Being compelled by melody and variation, Rain Dog, by his own admission, never had much talent for songwriting in terms of lyrics. To circumvent this, however, he focuses on creating a narrative within the music through the combination of synth work and samples. He starts with anything that sparks an interest or emotion in him – Tom Waits, Joni Mitchel, Ella Fitzgerald, Portico Quartet and moments from movies, samples like these usually work as a foundation for the tracks. He then adds layers of unique and organic synth sounds (a notion he finds quite interesting when working entirely from a digital platform) before eventually completing the production with the beat. He likes his music like a nice pie – warm, hearty, and crusty.

Berlin-based label Project: Mooncircle is an official label from hhv.de. It was founded in 2002 by Gordon Gieseking and is specializing in the conjunction between electronic and organic music. Being interested in music from his earliest childhood on, it eventually became more than just a passion to him. The label, at first envisaged as a compilation project only, found the perfect partner with Thomas Ulrich and his mail-order hhv.de in 2004, later being joined by Jinna Morocha from Moscow. This led the way for the first instrumental and vocal solo releases by such artists as Mr Cooper, 40 Winks, CYNE, Jahbitat, John Robinson, MF Doom, Lambent, Lewis Parker, Non of Shadowhuntaz, Graciela Maria, Strand, Robot Koch, Pavel Dovgal, Ta-Ku, Mika Gao, Onra, Obba Supa, fLako, Sina., 1000 Names, DZA, Krts, Long Arm or Glen Porter. In 2009 the sub-label Project: Squared, run by Paul Cooper and Peter Schachmann, two long-standing companions and co-workers, was founded. Project: Squared releases mainly Dubstep and Techno 12” records from such artists as Asusu, Furesshu, AnD, L-OW, Tom Diccico, Shifted and others. Another sub-label, Finest Ego, was added in 2010. Run by Malte Tarnow, its aim is to consolidate the versatility of instrumental beats, glitch or wonky and anything in between or beyond. The outcome are compilations with such producers as Daisuke Tanabe, Isaac Aesili, Om Unit, Lapalux, RLP, ichiro_, Himuro Yoshiteru, Pixelord, Monky, Christoph El Truento, and various others. The work of illustrators and graphic designers such as Bioniq, Dan May, Iain McArthur, Ima One, LNY, Gordon, 44 Flavours, La Mano Fria, and The Binh create images that accompany the acoustic spaces. Project: Mooncircle with its various producers & vocalist shall be an interesting experience for anyone looking for the extraordinary.

Review
Björn Bischoff, 20.01.2014

Samuel Evans hat nicht viel Talent – zumindest nicht wenn es darum geht, Songs mit Texten zu schreiben. Das behauptet er laut Pressetext selbst und das mag man nach dem ersten Durchlauf von »Two Words« gerne glauben. Denn was auf der einen Seite fehlt, aber hier niemand wirklich vermisst, hat die andere Seite dafür mehr. Denn Evans hat ein unglaubliches Talent für das Aufbauen von Emotionen und Atmosphären. Die unterschiedlichen Patterns verdichten und verschieben sich, ziehen sich zusammen und davon, wachsen und schrumpfen. Spielt »Regolith« noch ein wenig mit Hip Hop, eröffnen »Broken« und »Cloven« mit feinster Elektronik aus der abstrakten Weite. Verschiedene Einflüsse verschmelzen auf »Two Words« zu einem Sound, zu einem Gefühl, das dieses ganze Album durchdringt. Die verschiedenen Features passen sich da nett ein, wenn etwa Sam Rogers ein bisschen Soul in »Watch Over« liegen lässt. Als Rain Dog hat Samuel Evans ein Album geschaffen, das vielleicht die Brücke zwischen Flying Lotus und Tom Waits ist. Und das völlig ohne Worte. Wozu auch? Die Dinge kanalisieren sich an manchen Stellen auf atemberaubende Weise. »Two Words« ist ein Blick in den Nachthimmel, wo sich Linien langsam Linien zwischen den einzelnen funkelnden Punkten herauskristallisieren, wo das große Ganze manchmal durchschimmert, obwohl Rain Dog doch alles passend geerdet hat. Dafür braucht es mehr als nur Talent. Was auch immer das sein mag, Samuel Evans hat es.
