This is the second Stroboscopic Artefacts EP from Yotam Avni and, all things considered, it hasn't taken the artist too long to land on such as class label. Granted, releases for Ovum and Rebirth aren't exactly beneath the Berlin label, but this instantly puts him in a different category as a true resident of the German capital's nightlife. "Tehillim" is a growling, subtle techno pouncer with distant waves of apocryphal hymns, which is followed by the equally moody, grey-scaled techno bleeps and stutters of "Orma". Over on the B-side, "Shtok" dangles its gentle harmonics over a subdued attack of 4/4 drumming, and "Even" takes a turn down a lighter, more positive tonality that is nonetheless weighed down by a tenebrous techno sludge.
