With no track names, minimalist artwork and a matter-or-fact EP title (simply the record’s catalogue number), it would be fair to assume that Johannes Heil’s latest EP is a forthright, no-nonsense affair. Predictably, it is, with the long serving German producer dishing up a quartet of throbbing techno box jams. While each track is a loopy, rhythm-based trip, there’s still variety across the EP. Contrast, for example, the fluttering, alien-sounding synth loops and crunchy snare hits of “Track 2” with the buzzing, industrial-tinged intensity of “Track 3”. Or, for that matter, the jacking drum machine percussion and heavy bass of “Track 4”, and the clandestine creepiness of standout cut “Track 1”.
