Taking the opportunity to delve into the hard drives, DAT tapes and archives of some up-and-coming producers, (as well as some rather well-known ones, like Markus Suckut), Figure SPC goes abstract with this Various Artists EP.
Newcomer Lodbrock offers little in the way of info about his background, however Perfekt Ire speaks volumes of the producers obvious skills. Building on a 90s techno stomp, its a paranoid synth trip for the very late hours.
Markus Suckut contributes Sunrise, a deeper jam for the otherwise heavier techno producer. Its smooth chords and gently jacking percussion are expertly controlled by one of the labels key younger talents.
24 year old Spanish producer Regal brings Report A Crash in an ode to some classic Birmingham-scene techno. A crafty modern banger with a healthy nod to the classics.
Finally we get thoroughly tripped with Z.I.P.P.Os Symmetrica Therapy. Endless swathes of synthetic textures are introduced in an evolving, purist ride. Promising work from the 18 year old Italian newcomer.
