His recently lauded releases have all been dub-techno, and the A side continues in this vein. His deep house producing pedigree, however, shines through in all the tracks: where some dub-techno can be a bit listless on the floor, ‘Wavetable No. 9’ has no such problems. Sucking chords and subtle washes provide the dancefloor impetus in a track that could have been lost to atmospherics in less experienced hands. The tracks on the B side sound closer to his house work on Harmonie Park in the 90s, yet retain the subtle delays of the A. Languid chords and melodies characterise these two cuts, and while neither are suited for the prime time, both will serve well as tracks for warming up or winding down.
According to Mike Huckaby's MySpace, this 12” is already sold out. A sure sign, along with his bookings at places such as Panoramabar and Fabric, that deeper sounds such as these are finding increased popularity with clubbers. With music as good as this, it's a trend I'm happy to see.
