Boomkat Product Review:
Easily the best Applepips since the Martyn 12" comes from the hands of our favourite Berlin producer and techno pioneer Torsten Profrock with two tempo varied techno steppers ranking among the best tracks in his catalogue. The real good techno stuff lies on the A-side with 'Audio1995*8', sitting next to his MDR remix or the sick 'Aquatic/Storm' tracks on a throbbing 130bpm techno flex with utterly alien synthlines decaying into fine abstract forms and anchored by deeply submerged beats shot through with that intricate rhythmic rattle that signifies the best of his work. Flip the script for 'Audio1995*8_2' as T++ moves operations into 140bpm territory with crisp biting rimshot/hihat syncopations twisted into mesmerising shapes and belying more than a little of the influence of Paradox's drumfunk flex upon his work, but entirely recontextulaized for future techno steppers. We don't need to say any more on this 12", it's outstanding and completely essential. RECOMMENDED!
