Ben Sims – Theory Of Completion [THEORY050.2/THEORY050.3]

Ben Sims presents ‘Theory Of Completion’ the final release on his label Theory. He unleashes four forward forward-thinking Techno cuts for 050.2, two of these receiving the remix treatment from Planetary Assault Systems and DVS1. On 050.3, Sims goes all out with a grip of dancefloor killers, backed by a stunning remix from none other than Surgeon.

DVS1 – Klockworks 013 [KLOCKWORKS013]

It would be fair to say that this latest EP from Minneapolis-raised Zak Khutoretsky features a trio of “tried and tested” cuts. Label boss Ben Klock has taken to closing his sets with lead track “Black Russian”, a surprisingly light and airy chunk of loop-techno blessed with deliciously warm and evocative pianos. The other two tracks aren’t quite as anthemic, but they’re certainly floor-friendly; you’ll struggle to find a more brutal and intense chunk of claustrophobic late night techno than “Spying” – all minor keys, restless shakers and booming sub – while “Creeping” is similarly dark and jackin’, with distinct hints of early Belgian techno.

Trus’me – The Red Remixes [PN014]

TRUSME - In The Red (DVS1 remix) (Front Cover)

As Trus’me steers himself further into techno territory after his emergence as a champion of funk-rooted house music, this latest set of remixes further highlights how the man has impeccable taste to match his production abilities. DVS1 creates a cavernous beast out of “In The Red”, as a sumptuous metallic reverb provides the centrepiece for fluttering hats and flat kicks in a masterful exercise in techno restraint. Meanwhile Terrence Dixon proves his worth in the world of leftfield Detroitisms with a mesmerizing melodic hook and an insistent yet restrained bassline as he tackles “Shakea Body”.
