Swiss city Berne may not be the first mainland European city you think of when someone throws the question "Name a hotspot for experimental bass music?" at you, but the city's newly established RE:ST label aim to change that. Founded by some of the people responsible for bringing the best of Bass music to Berne, the debut RE:ST release offers a platform for local talent Phrex and Cutkachi to shine and they certainly do, manning a side each and bringing their own distinct takes on club music between the 128-140 BPM range. Phrex leads the way with a killer exercise in fx laden sub heavy polyrhythms that wouldn't sound out of place on Deep Medi. The B Side veers into the grey zone between bass music and techno as Cutkachi flexes his 4/4 muscles with the stuttering late night deepness of "Moonlight".
