Back in 2009, Fachwerker Mike Denhert was employed by Clone to launch their robust, no-nonsense Basement Series with the Umlaut2 12" which packed a memorable Levon remix. Denhert's entered the Clone Basement several times since then, this 12" is his fourth for the series! The title track sets the tone, with steely percussive hits and razor-sharp stabs riding a swinging, funk-fuelled groove. "Wokabeat" is deeper, darker and more obviously bass-heavy, with Denhert adding skipping cymbals as a neat contrast. Arguably best of all, though, is closer "Say How", whose cut-up vocal samples and sweaty rave stabs perfectly compliment his tracky, locked-in, snare-heavy techno groove. There are few surprises, but all four tracks hit home hard.
