Tough but tender tracks from two of techno's best live performers.
The first sound you hear on "Catnip Freak" is the distorted boom of Rudiman's signature 808. That track, like the others on AMS > PIT, wanders through a kaleidoscope of despondent synth lines and dub chords, but the kicks keep chugging along. Hearing the electro jerk of "Down To Biz," it's easy to picture these two keeping a festival dance floor heaving. "Hole In The Ground" is the type of thing you can imagine going down well during a live set from Magic Mountain High, its delayed and muffled melodies unfurling before white noise and a looped vocal wash them out. If it weren't for the kicks low in the mix, you could almost call it ambient.
