Polar Inertia – Kinematic Optics EP [DM3D011]

French men-of-mystery Polar Inertia describe themselves as a “blurry techno entity”. They’re at their shape-shifting best on Kinematic Optics, a double vinyl excursion that contains their first original material since 2012. They set their stall out with the foreboding, cinematic ambience of the title track (built, incidentally, around an extensive spoken word vocal), before delivering an epic chunk of rolling industrial techno (“Floating Away Fire”). There’s a mournful, melancholic feel to the deep techno throbber “Vertical Ice”, while “Hell Frozen Over” is fittingly dark and murky. The second 12″ contains a recording of previous live performance “Can We See Well Enough To Move On?” in its entirety, with droning textures and glacial electronics guaranteeing a spine-chilling mood.

Redspecs – Absent EP [DRH049]

Deeply Rooted’s new version continues with a 4 tracks EP by Redspecs aka Roman Poncet. Fierce techno tracks from the vital Parisian techno scene. The EP starts with the dark and haunting vibe of 1309S, followed up by Absent: a great Techno groover that builds and builds. On the B side Atanol develops a relentless groove while Interstellaire is more hypnotic.
