John Heckle flares his prowess on this release, covering many different approached to techno/house. Alexandria channels some of Hieroglyphic Being’s heavily distorted analog kicks pushing a melody forward, track 2 is a sparse track hinting at a huge groove, Mesopotamia is a speedy and hard hitting, eyes closed, acid house track whilst the closer is a mad hand clapped and 808 cowbell, heavily distorted flurry.

8/10 Jamie Staff review, 12 September 2016

It’s a muscular release this, from the ever-reliable John Heckle. Opening up, and pushed along by a deliciously distorted, funky and persistent kick drum, ‘Alexandria’ channels Hieroglyphic Being -- both in its preoccupation with ancient civilisations and an almost chaotic sense of melody, sometimes veering close to early Dave Angel releases. There’s a brief reprise in ‘Untitled’ tucked away at the end of side A.

‘Mesopotamia’ is an even deeper excursion into techno-phunk; speedy, harder and indebted to acid house it may be, but there’s that punchy, overdriven kick and addictive melodiousness. It’ll have people dancing wildly from Glasgow to Brighton, no doubt. I don’t want these bending oscillations and peaking levels to end, but they must; before that though, is the closing track. ‘Untitled’ (B) with its cowbell-punctuated 808 and frenzied handclaps is a nice way to round off yet another madly proficient instalment in the Heckle series to date.
