"I just really like listening to albums. I think the popular notion of techno not lending itself to the album format is just a myth," says Haslam. Both Haslam and Auvinen are no strangers to the album format - Haslam has released three under his own name, and Tin Man has released no fewer than six.
"The album format allows for more cohesive artistic statements than other formats - it feels like more of an achievement and delivers a filled-out narrative," explains Auvinen. That's a perfect summation of Valere Aude.
Building on the blueprint they sketched with Ambulare Aude EP (BK 012EP 2015), their first 12" for The Bunker New York, Valere Aude presents a fleshed-out vision of another world where acid techno falls like rain upon a forgotten civilization. "The album connects to a fantastic fictional history in which we are imagining attitudes lost to the waters of time," Auvinen says. The track titles, in fact, allude to geographic designations in the greater Roman empire, adds Haslam. Although both Haslam and Auvinen are fully established artists in their own right, Romans is more than a meeting of the minds. "We are discovering a third entity as Romans, within Romans, which is neither he [Haslam] nor I," explains Auvinen, cryptically. "Our decisions as producers become simpler as we get closer to discovering Romans' sound." Haslam concurs: "Our production process is pretty quick - our compositional style is similar. We give each jam all that we have, then, later, sort 'em out and let providence decide whether it's any good." The finished product is a steamy, moody record, experimenting with atmospheres, tempos, and sounds, designed for blistering hot days and cold, rainy nights.
