Dekmantel’s 5th Anniversary Series has so far been as finely curated and presented as you’d expect from the Dutch label, and this penultimate entry is no different with Skudge and San Proper introducing some dark techno business to proceedings. Swedish duo Skudge are on fine form with “Silent Running” delivering one of their subtly melodic productions that revolves grainily around one repeated and tweaked refrain. Given San Proper’s dedication to the label (he sports a Dekmantel tattoo after all) it’s little surprise the hirsute Amsterdam icon was asked to contribute and “Rattle (Station 2 Station)” is one of the best tracks on the series so far. A grinding, industrial beat mixes with dense vocals, synths, speech samples and plenty more. The end result is a perfect example of the kind of steamy, sweaty haze of late night damage that Mr Proper has made his own.
