Appointment – Reconstruction [AP005]

The ever mysterious Appointment enclave return with the fifth volume of self titled releases, with the four untitled cuts here supposedly finished on a whistle-stop visit to our fair capital London. As per usual, the end product will appeal to those of you who prefer your house music to be raw and unhinged, not least the brooding opening track which is steeped in saturation and pumps along with a piston-like rhythm smashing through your synapses amidst a backdrop dipped in heaving vocal delay. From here Appointment dabble in sub heavy swamp house on the second track which explodes into life quite brilliantly mid way through via an endless procession of shrieking, crashing stabs. Our favourite here however is the third track, which sounds like it was recorded in a cavernous, disused tube station pairing heavily dubbed jack vocals with swirling pianos amidst the singularly dull thud of drums.

Egal 3 – Time Train [EDEC003]

EDEC offers up a third serving of deep tinged techno. This EP comes from the Romanian duo Egal 3 with remix duty going to Ryan Elliott. “Time Train” is an absolute onslaught of percussion, bass and synth constantly slaying away at the dance floor, while creating a certain euphoric atmosphere. On the flip Mr. Elliott strips back the orignal building a deep groove that defies categorisation.
