The debut release on Anno is a limited 12” from New York techno guy Hank Jackson who has previously released records with other eminent New Yorkers, Anthony Naples and the Mister Saturday Night boys. Gacx on the A-side is a distorted bit of dub techno, while both tracks on the B-side are beatless textural affairs.
8/10 Ant Staff review, 06 December 2017
The inaugural release on anno, comes from NYC producer Hank Jackson who’s previously been spotted on Mister Saturday Night and Anthony Naples Proibito label. ‘Gacx’ recalls the intricate, icy productions of Monolake with its off-kilter techno beats, near frozen bubbling liquid sounds and crackling ice. Despite the chilly Arctic feel, there’s warmth to be found in its longing bassline - the overall effect is like coming round, having survived a whiteout or blizzard and hearing ice crystals forming around you. Then there’s a huge sweeping engine like sound, as though a helicopter has come to the rescue. ‘Snake Pit’ is like gushing waterfalls of melted snow cascading over the edges of an iceberg, while ‘oebbbbbbb’ gets all cracked and shimmering Chain Reaction style with some aquatic sound design reminiscent of Porter Ricks. A Great EP and only 200 copies so don’t hang about.
