Death in Vegas head honcho Richard Fearless now making trippy, minimal analogue techno. This is the highly anticipated follow-up to Higher Electronic State and is a particularly enticing twelve inch event considering the inclusion of a Legowelt remix. Danny Wolfers name on anything more than triples the inclination to buy a record. Next - Liam Howlett unleashes an Italo disco classic.

- Gamma Ray by Richard Fearless
Death In Vegas man makes minimal techno record shocker. Richard Fearless has thrown away his guitars (or at least unplugged them and put them on his gigantic guitar rack) in order to get in touch with his inner synth wizard on his second electronic solo 12", 'Gamma Ray'. I'm grateful to whoever wrote the sarcastic item description for a bit of light relief at the end of a review-heavy week.
'Gamma Ray' is a pretty strong track anyway, led by a throbbing bass pulse, Fearless piles on smart minimal beats and subtle analogue synth swells and modular tweaks that slowly and intuitively build into a very danceable and slightly cosmic slice of smooth future electronics. Not only that but on the flipside it's being remixed by none other than workaholic electronic icon Danny "Legowelt" Wolfer. He flips the track inside out into a multifaceted slab of hypno-trance with woozy drip'n'click rhythms, backwards synths, bright acid squiggles and womby sub-bass woms. Utterly unrecognisable but at least as good as the original on the A side. Not a bad 12".
