Hardass Detroit electro-techno from the captain of his industry, DJ Stingray 313, who’s still pushing it like few others with his debut for Athens-based Lower Parts.
On the front you’ll find one of a rare excursion in 130bpm tempo with the slamming-but-spaced out 4:4 torque of Acetylcholine whereas Dendrite pumps up to his signature 140bpm+ scale with a coruscating flux of underwater FX and pronging percussion swept in trippy mixing trickery.
Backside, eRbB4 again catches him at a rarer 134bpm roll with lush harmonic developments as close as you’ll get to Stingray’s Drexciyan roots, a matter further explored in Kon001’s booming 808 rerub.
Stingray is the best.
Detroit’s captain of industry, Terrence Dixon yields exceptionally trim and driving techno cuts on the Athens-based Lower Parts label.
Currently working in 5th gear, despite announcing his retirement a few years ago, Dixon serves up his signature sound between the subaquatic dynamics of the first part, thru a killer piece of Afro-tribal techno patterning int he 2nd, to an infectious wriggler on the B-side recalling recent Jeff Mills trajectories, and one pounding, uptempo deep techno workout in the 5th part.
