Teutonic electro-tech-house from The Working Elite, making their debut with Tim Sweeney’s BIS
‘Rockman’ kicks off with a stealthily building piece of tech-house for international espionage, while ‘Born Again’ takes said spy to a disco scene in Bonn circa ’86 for a tense, exciting, strobelite chase scene.
Lauer & Saap remix ‘Rockman’ as a snappier electro swanger with nagging riffs and killed trills, then go all romantic with the kinky swagger of their ‘Lover’s Code’ remix.

“After an appearance on the U S S R compilation on Opal back in 2016, Monotronique leans out from the shadow again with a ten track tape of brutal, minimal body music, operating both as dance tools and as actual pitch forks.
The paired down palette fuses grimey stabbing synths against stoic, saturated drums. Rave lines pour into reverberated backgrounds of stark colour. The A side of the album is all tight, negi-funk and flex where the following side goes out into faster tempos and more ascetic compositions.
'Heat Absorber' collects only a few tracks of the massive arsenal at Monotroniques hand. Tracks which have laid waste to many dancefloors in his native Ukraine and will continue to render the fat of any floors subject to this glorious battery.”

‘Trigger’ delivers a stealthy dose of techno adrenalin and ‘Flying Objects’ carves away into hydroelectric pulses with a steely acidic minimalism recalling Dash Rush productions.
