Floating between acid techno and a haunting IDM, Jared Wilson is back. Praying to the spirits of the underground workers of decades past, he has summoned forces unknown to create Ghost Miners II. This is a follow-up to his debut album (feel free to guess its title) - these 4 twitchy and almost paranoid tracks will leave you with a deep respect for miners, and a great appreciation for the open space above ground.

Detroit beatsmith Jared Wilson may have birthed the first historic memorial acid techno LP last year with Ghost Miners, a record dedicated to those who toiled their lives away to provide us with shiny bits for our Rolexes. Techno doesn’t seem to have an affinity for bijou wristwear though, because you can’t see watches in the dark of the club.
This follow-up EP, also on 7777, is certainly music for pickaxes that once were, each of the four tracks here exemplifying the name. Obviously, it’s techno, so you’re gonna have the industrial hard-hitting labour covered by thumping drum machines spitting out their Detroit ceremony, squelchy acid bleeps that bring the fun to the nightmare, but the spook is expanded by subdued, minimal pads accompanying the first 3 tracks with gloomy suggestiveness. As enjoyable as they are, they place these all within the same category as variations on a theme. It is in the final track that it all comes together, with pads being dropped for multilayered hammering synth loops forming an undeniable groove. Nice bit of new wave Detroit business.
