Review: This is the sixth vinyl release from the Kin-Ben LABEL, based in Niihama City, Japan. Releasing since 2012, the label was founded by Akinori Ishii aka The Human & Assets. When it comes to hypnotic techno, the Japanese really know a thing or two and this release follows in the tradition of such masters of the art as Iori, Wata Igarashi or the legendary Takaaki Itoh. On the A side is the slow burning alien groove of "Eduction" which drones and slithers away nefariously in odd synthesis and creepy sound design. This one will will appeal to fans of Mike Parker or Rrose. On the flip, Tokyo techno stalwart Hironori Takahashi (Gynoid/Arts) is back. His rework of the track is more straight ahead and certainly in your face! This industrial strength epic is full of harsh metallic strikes and ultra hypnotic loops, supported by a relentless warehouse style stomp.
