Review of Elusive Geometry in Beat

Germany’s Beat pubished this wonderful, considered review in January 2018.

The integration of field recordings into an electronic context has almost become a cliche, a trick of the trade. Dave House on the other hand is building the sparkling foundation of a futuristic hybrid that, through the medium of his laptop-production, creates the feeling of an organic band and real spaces. To begin with the sounds seem a little lost, like the toys of a child who has strewn them all over the floor. But with every beat they bind themselves more to delicate structures, soft rhythms, concrete melodies and prancing electronics. The geometry of Dave House may be elusive, but that’s what makes it all the more moving.
