Imbued with elements of the North’s industrious past, but flecked with hints of Birmingham and Detroit techno, Reflec manages to squeeze every ounce of life out of his machinic workings, presenting them in a progressive and extended form that couples as a club journey in the truest sense.
Ekman returns to the Berceuse Heroique imprint with another formidable chunk of acid rave sorcery. “GMMDI” brilliantly blends relentless techno rhythms, recorded-in-a-cement-mixer synths and dancing rave melodies into the sort of throbbing techno banger that could have been recorded at any point over the last 30 years. Ekman’s old pals Breaker 1 2 (aka Greg Beato) provide the B-side remix, simmering things down whilst retaining the original’s foreboding chords and thumping beats.
