Fast, one-take techno for Ben Klock's label.
While the compilation showcased the streamlined and subtle sides of the veterans (Laux's "Dark Fader" and Sterac's "Lately" come to mind), Mendesidis's productions are lively and energetic in comparison—traits owing to his live, one-take recording method where filtering and effects move in and out of the mix. Klockworks 26 follows this formula to potent effect. "Celesta 33," its approaching sectional changes unashamedly implied by a high-pass filter, is anthemic and uplifting. "Cyber Document" and "Hunt," propelled by cryptic vocal stabs and snappy drums characteristic of Mendesidis's best work, are moodier and as fast-paced as you'll find in the Klockworks catalogue.
