Debiasing's four tracks might be without a kick drum but they are still ready for club play. The sound design is full-bodied and powerful, with plenty of low-end presence. A few tracks are even relatively easy to mix with other techno. Take "Look How Hard I've Tried," the EP's strongest tune. Its trance synths and strings, familiar like some '90s classic, tick at 135 BPM, the whoosh of analogue synth slamming on every downbeat. The intensity builds but the rhythm stays locked, dragging you closer to euphoria as the track soars with every bar.
"Cascade Effect" deals in a similar state of joy. There seem to be choral vocals hidden in the mix, fighting through a tangled mess of spluttering trance chords and zapping synths. "When Prophecy Fails" is the EP at its most reduced, free of the bass weight that anchors the other tracks. It's atmospheric, a delicate counterpoint to the rest of the EP. File this next to Ostgut Ton classics like Dettmann and Klock's Scenario and Shed's Shedding The Past. Like Debiasing, both broadened the possibilities of techno while staying loyal to its structure.
