Review: Titonton Duvante is not mentioned often enough when the sounds of the Motorcity are cited across the underground music landscape. The Detroit talent has been making beats since the early 90s, and he's touched several important labels like Planet E, 7th City and Multiplex in his time, along with his own excellent Residual Recordings. He's back on our charts after a lengthy hiatus with a HOT reissue of his 1998 classic, The Arousal, which kicks off with the utterly twisted, cybernetic groove of "Fetish", a deranged analog techno lick, which quickly dissolves into the bubbly synth attack called "Uhephna". On the B-side, "Lick" launches some devastating kick drums over a minimalistic bleep rhythm, and "Skin On Skin" goes for a comparatively more laid back and jazzy approach. All in all, a magnificently effective bunch of dance bruisers.
