You Are A Blade
You Are A Blade (12" 再出版)
Cat: KOMPAKT 343. Rel: 15 Dec 20
Minimal/Tech House
  1. You Are A Blade (8:34)
  2. Musik Hypnotises (8:24)
  3. Wasp Factory (7:00)
Review: The mysterious, canine-loving producer delivers three slabs of euphoric but tough techno for Michael Mayer's label. The title track is full of the kind of spine-tingling hooks and melodies that this project has long been associated with, but on this occasion, it is delivered against the backdrop of a steely, spiky rhythm. On "Musik Hypnotises", all semblance of melody is absent, and in its place there is a rough, acid-soaked techno workout. Finally, "Wasp Factory" inhabits a similar space, with heavy, warped beats and nasty 303 riffs propelling this dog lover into a much more abrasive sound than before.

Crasher (B-STOCK)

Minimal/Tech House
  1. Crasher
  2. Hold It/Control It
Review: ***B-STOCK: Creasing to corner of outer sleeve but otherwise in excellent condition***


In the two years that have passed since his last EP on Kompakt, Jake Williams (that's Rex The Dog to you and me) has spent much of his time releasing his "secret weapon" edits as digital-only singles. Perhaps he intended them to be his swansong to the nu-disco scene, because both tracks here are far more driving and intoxicating than many of his previous releases. "Crasher" is a throbbing chunk of peak-time Euro-techno underpinned by a pulsating arpeggio bassline, echo-laden computer bleeps and waves of undulating electronics. Flipside "Hold It/Control It" sounds like an EBM lover's take on Paul Woolford classic "Erotic Discourse", albeit with the addition of some catchy cut-up vocal samples.

Teufelsberg
Cat: KOMPAKT 353. Rel: 22 May 20
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Teufelsberg (7:04)
  2. Shortwave (6:52)
Review: Jake Williams has been fairly productive since bringing his Rex The Dog project to Kompakt in early 2015. Even so, Teufelsberg marks his first single release of 2016. The title track sees him in fine form, lacing woozy, stretched-out lead lines and dreamy pads atop a thrusting, Italo-disco influenced, arpeggio groove. It also features a peach of a breakdown, which is guaranteed to get the spine tingling before the groove returns with a vengeance. Flipside "Shortwave" sees Williams combining Bobby Peru bleeps and Moroder style arpeggio synthesizers to devastating effect, a clutch of notable, repeated vocal samples rounding off a sweaty, floor-friendly concoction.
