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.
