Tripping techno to hypnotise dance floors.
Few labels of Tresor's stature would put a track like "Magnet" on the A1. A snakecharming bleep sequence sparkles above a kick drum that darts around the grid, the disjointed groove struggling to stay in time. It'll take a skilled DJ to make this work at a club, but the results will be utterly psychedelic when they do. "Parenthesis" and "Say It Again" are more straightforward, both anchored to steady four-on-the-floor kick. "Descent" is somewhere in between experimental and functional, as bleeps bubble like boiling water while the soft kick drum keeps time. It's great to hear another high-profile techno EP that looks beyond a dance floor's more simple needs.
