Now I’ll be a proud techno fiend til the day I die. More than any other strain of music it’s been the soundtrack to the absolute best times in my life, save when my children were born. But let’s face it it’s a genre of music where you have to turn on your shit filter to the max. So many bland, generic 12”s come out week after week. The best in my opinion are the ones where artists really inject their personalities and vision into the music. Techno is music that transports you and lets you feel free from life's shackles. Music that makes you think and move, and boy does this fucker make you rock. I’m having to type words between frantic head nodding and body shaking such is the energy being transmitted to me from these here grooves. Rabih Beaini aka Morphosis has a good set of ears on him, picking up some of today’s creative techno visionaries such as Hieroglyphic Being who put out the previous record on his label Morphine. This is Ren Schofield’s inaugural release on the imprint following up on two bangin’ LPs for Spectrum Spools.
The EP kicks off with Interior, a raw and uncompromising rugged beast that demands High volume. He rolls out a chrome covered jugganaut of hot industrial machine fury that in a large darkened room at 4AM will transport you to the year 3000. Heavy rugged percussion belts out a steady groove while eerie pulses, clanks and bleeps recall absolute prime time Planetary Assault Systems. It has those crude edges before everyone started making really slick computer productions. I almost shit myself first time I heard ‘Saturated’. It’s so far up my street I feel like it was created for me personally. There must be something in the water over there in Providence RI, they like their shit raw, like imagine if Load was a techno label then this is what they’d probably be peddling. Having said that don’t be misled that this is merely harsh noisy techno, far from it, this guy has one of techno’s key ingredients - THE FUNK. Gradually this track switches gear as new sounds are introduced until I can well imagine a sweaty dancefloor all grinning, cheering and proper going for it. None of this stood about chin stroking or posing nonsense, if you feel it, you got gotta get down. A powerful weapon on any discerning techno dancefloor. This will positively slay them.
The percussive skeleton of ‘Treatment’ recalls the mesmerising minimalism of Function and Regis’ early productions together in the '90s on Downwards as Portion Reform. This is more dynamic though, not as stripped back and minimal but sharing a similar mechanical machine funk aesthetic to begin with. Then it really builds and builds with slow steady tension to frantic levels of peak-time intensity. Again this tune will destroy a club, one of those that completely changes the dynamic of the dancefloor taking it to the next nevel.
Can’t recommend this one enough - An absolute monster and not a duffer on there. Hard to pick a fave tune cuz they all rock hard. You can probably tell this one’s got me a bit excited, I probably better turn it down before my ears explode.
