John Heckle – Wet Noises [MNSX003]

The secret to John Heckle’s impressive productivity is probably his admirable commitment to jamming with analogue hardware. Certainly, there’s a loose, all-action immediacy to this outing on Midnight Shift. Tinged by acid throughout, and with more than a few nods to both Detroit futurism and vintage British “intelligent techno” (most obvious on the early Orbital style, stargazing shuffle of closer “Frozen Planet”). The title track itself is particularly potent, offering a surging combination of stomping techno drums and intoxicating acid lines, while the bleaker “Alpha Deux” sounds like the musical foretelling of some kind of post-apocalyptic future.
