- Beneath The Skin EP by Terence Fixmer
8/10 Laurie Staff review, 18 August 2016
First time on Ostgut Ton for longtime footstomper Terence Fixmer featuring 4 tracks of deep industrial-tinged techno for the underground bunkers of metropolises worldwide. His production has already delighted these ears with interesting and bold moves outside of the purists approach of just harsh, abstract percussive loops and distant clangs, oh joy.
In general, most of them feature a more subdued low rumbling kick paired with ghostly reverberant hats as the bedrock, as ‘Beneath the Skin’ begins but is joined by an oozy multitude of bending synth strings. Quite upbeat actually. As complete contrast, ‘Trace to Nowhere’ features a cavernous voice murmuring exasperatedly at marked moments, building to a drippy squeaky synth in the 2nd half that manages to remain playful. Besides the 3rd track, which has more of a hammering prominent bass synth and murky atonal swells, it definitely retains a cheeky fun edge that a lot of srs techno srsly lacks. Nice range of tempi too, with the closer ‘Immersion’ keeping things low key and breezy to offset the middle 2.
