- R38 EP by Lasse Buhl

Echocord sub-label Echocord Colour (named due to the fact the releases are on coloured vinyl) have been in fine form recently with a slew of quality 12”s from the likes of Function, Mike Dehnert, Luke Hess etc. This particular 3 track EP is on pink wax and is produced by Lasse Buhl which will probably be an unfamiliar name to many in the techno community as this is his first solo record but he usually records as Half of the Copenhagen techno duo Northern Structures who have had like 3 killer 12”s on techno don Adam X’s legendary Sonic Groove imprint.
Opening cut ‘R38’ is armed with a mid-tempo tough kick drum and plenty of dubby industrial subtle clanks and a hypnotic eerie synth, the main hook has a slight EBM flavour to it. A simple yet effective loop wrapped in shuffling percussion. The whole thing kinda teases with hints of intensity but never reaching a full climax.
‘Em.a Ai’ is a futuristic slab of deep spaced out techno gear with a stomping unconventional rhythmic framework, again with some mechanical/ industrial hits and a reasonably foreboding atmosphere. It has a similar construction to the previous track in that it has a main riff/ loop carrying it along for hypnotic effect but this simplicity is counterbalanced by more complex sound design and obligatory delay soaked rim shots.
Berlin producer Milton Bradley is an artist I’ve been taking a very keen interest in for a little while now. He runs the excellent but slightly corny named Do Not Resist The Beat label and also records some mean acid tracks as Alien Rain. He makes an appearance here on remix duties of ‘R83’ including original elements but injecting his well honed dark futuristic flavour into the mix for a slow paced subtle burner that has a slight dubstep / bass thing happening with the beats. Not the best I’ve heard from this guy by a mile but still decent eerie deep techno gear.
