After a whirlwind year in 2011, fledgling young German producer Markus Suckut steps up once again on Figure SPC with three perfect exercises in modern basement techno.
Groovy, yet stripped and decidedly minimalist, a breathtaking rolling bassline first becomes apparent in, 'Hunt'. Then, lurking in the the space between the pounding, engineered kick we find a restless static tone, that filters, ignites and shimmers around Markus' no-nonsense beats. Heavy drama with only a few elements!
The grinding 'Section' works a playful, squeeking synth riff in and out of a snaking drumtrack, with more pummeling sub bass energies. An adept hand at arranging his tracks to be full of tension and suspense, Suckut captures the energy in this 6 minute funk-weapon.
In a more classic dub-style, 'Scent' pushes the deeper echelons of the dancefloor with its bouncing sub bass and lurking, resonant synth flourishes. Once again its all in the subtle mechanics and machine funk of this tooly, atmosphere builder.
