Increase my musical knowledge? That is so funny. You think because I draw a comparison between two artists that you don't agree with means I'm lacking knowledge?
I bought Robert Hood's 'Minimal Nation' album on Axis in 1994 and his 'The Protein Valve' 12" on M-Plant also in 1994 and have been buying his records ever since. You don't think Robert Hood was inspired by EBM when he was with Underground Resistance?
As far as Silent Servant goes, I've been buying Juan Mendez's records since he used to record and release as DJ Jasper on Cytrax in 1998 and also have been buying his records ever since. I have every Silent Servant 12" on Sandwell District, Semantica etc. While I'm at it I have every release on Sandwell District... Sorry to ruin your day but there isn't much I don't know about techno. That might sound arrogant but I eat sleep and shit techno 24/7. I have a Drop Bass Network Tattoo on my right arm and am currently listening to Reform by Stave while wearing a Throbbing Gristle T-shirt. You with me?
That riff I refer to in the track sounds like Robert Hood to my ears. It may not to you and that's fine. But telling me to increase my musical knowledge, especially where techno or any electronic music is concerned is hilarious. Implying I don't know my shit when it comes to techno is more offensive to me than calling my mum a slag ;)
Silent Servant aka Juan Mendez takes the first side with ‘Lust Abandon’ with a strong Robert Hood-esque bassline at it’s core with mid-tempo kick and plenty of sinister hissy industrial atmospherics that sound like some evil dentist drilling away in the next room.
Powell’s Reconstruction manages to squeeze in many elements of his distinctive style. The drums are lighter, almost kraut-rocky with a post punk/ punk funk bassline and lots of snippets of fragmented original elements falling and cracking about all over the place. There’s a cool little breakdown too. Tricks galore in this tune but it still remains really dancefloor friendly despite the more “experimental” elements, for lack of a better word from my increasingly decaying grey matter.
Top action on both sides plus a CD mixed by Ning Nong is included so you can have a little rave in the car while your mates are skinning up and snogging in the back seat.
10/10 Jackie Ann Customer review, 24th October 2014
This is a beautiful limited edition EP which is apart of the Jealous God series you cannot fault Silent Servant always serving your ears to please, its stunning melodic vibes & the haunting vocal gestures by the Servant himself, thought provoking forward thinking techno at its best. The art work is stunning which defiantly ads something very special for avid vinyl collector and DJ's who want to add more depth to there sets or podcasts this EP is defiantly worth investing in.

There is nothing from Robert Hood in the S.Servant's track. Its strictly EBM, Early synth music flavor seq. S.Servant is a follower of 80s esthetic. Increase your music knowledge guys.
