ADHH, AD//SS & ADDC are three cerebrum mutators from UK techno label Brothers. Similar to their previous releases, collaboration is the focus with BROS006. AnD hooks up with Headless Horseman, Sunil Sharpe & D. Carbone on this 12" vinyl. Titles such as 'Security Breach' and 'Sonic Erosion', reflect the attitudes of these acidic monoliths - a total techno deluge.

If you haven’t come across the Brothers label before, the basic concept is simple; they get four producers to lay down two or three tracks on a vinyl and encourage collaboration between artists which often results in a unique and interesting brand of techno. Very much on the harder, more industrial side of the techno spectrum, the label has so far seen artists such as Mike Parker, Paul Birken and Clouds drop tracks for them. This time around we see Manchester techno duo AnD on all three tracks. They collaborate well with relative newcomers Headless Horseman as well as the currently in vogue Sunil Sharp and co-owner of Repitch, D.Carbone.
‘Dead Hush’ is a dark, misanthropic number with a steely kick and subtle but piercing hi-end. The snare knocks you off your feet when it crashes into the mix, and the dark, cold, siren-like pads acts as glue for the percussive elements. A creeping, machine funk arpeggiator scuttles across the dubstep styled rhythm, dropping sizzling electrical warbles. The entire track is as dark as it is sonically spectacular and the textures and layers that mould this track together are really something. Unlike the A-side the B-Side contains two acid techno tracks, which have a more standard four to the floor rhythm. ‘Security Breach’ is a lot less dark than the A-Side but still has a brutality to it that is very appealing and makes this track tremendously danceable. It does get a tad tedious as the track goes on, however it’s clearly one for the dancefloor and would be very fun to mix with. ‘Sonic Erosion’ continues in the same vein as ‘Security Breach’ and has a fierce kick with an acid bassline that grabs you by the balls and forces you to wiggle. As the track moves forward a harmonising acid layer is introduced that transcends the listener into a higher state of consciousness. This is probably the standout track of the EP, and its a hi-octane intense trip that would make Hardcell blush.
I’m a big fan of the Brothers label and I really like the ethos behind their releases, this EP certainly cements the reputation of the label and I’m already looking forward to the next one!
