ALl tracks are written and produced by Radu Bogdan Cilinca for Cadenza Records. Published by Copyright Control / (p) & (c) Cadenza Records 2008. Mastered by Rashad, Dubplates and Mastering. Distributed worldwide by www.wordandsound.net

You could be forgiven for mistaking Rhadoo for the kind of guy that thinks he has all the time in the world. After all, his music—like the four tracks on this, his first EP for Cadenza—watches no clock (except possibly the timer that tells him when the vinyl is about to run out). Nine minutes, 12 minutes, 13, 13 and a half... His tracks are the opposite of hurried. They're languorous, luxurious, positively decadent. Stretching out atop a cushion of velvety beats, his music caresses infinity in every repetition.

With Dor Mit Oru, Rhadoo follows through on that promise, throwing the doors wide open with the sly fury of a benevolent Pandora. The double EP is nothing if not ambitious, featuring four long, evolving tracks that forego gimmicks in favor of a deeper kind of engagement. What upon first listen sounds minimal, thanks to a familiar palette of treated percussion, slight harmonic squiggles, and not much else, reveals itself to be far denser, deeper, and more nuanced. Unusually hypnotic, Rhadoo's tracks blindfold the listener, spinning you round like a dervish, until dizziness dissolves into pure weightlessness.

What makes Rhadoo's grooves so different? It's impossible to put your finger on, but it has something to do with his curious sense of timekeeping. His beats flex with the twitchy fallibility of human muscles. His melodic phrases stretch far beyond the familiar confines of the four-bar loop, unfurling to fill space in a way seemingly without measure. Insistent, almost tribal patterns are atomized into boundless orbits. It also has something to do with Rhadoo's approach to sound, fusing the reassuring warmth of acoustic percussion with the shimmering timbres of the digital imagination, as though threading catgut and horsehair with pixel pearls.

For all its underlying complexity, Rhadoo's music is unusually immediate: these are songs for the dance, after all, as welcoming as a familiar face behind the decks. Welcome to Rhadoo's world.
