"Rndm" stands out as the highlight of the release, creatively pairing a subtle rolling groove with the type of four-on-the-floor clap pattern we've come to expect from producers like Jonas Kopp. "Main" combines thick, bass-heavy kicks with an almost breath-like, airy noise sweep flowing in and out. The EP as a whole seems to follow in suit with what we've heard from DVS1, Ben Klock and other purist techno producers recently.
Simply put, these tracks sound forceful and full, and are an example of Psyk's mastery of the style and his passion for the classic techno aesthetic. However, one can't help but wish that Psyk would apply these keen production skills to something other than classic dance floor bangers and nostalgic reveries. Earlier this year, tracks like his goliath "Second Trail" on Figure stood absolutely unforgiving and were haunting in a way that few could imitate. By comparison, the Distane EP gives the impression that Psyk may have been playing it a bit too safe this time.
