Boomkat Product Review:
Gesloten Cirkel bends his machines to signature slants on acid techno, Chi house and electro for Tiga’s Turbo label
Sustaining the momentum of his 12”s for Marcel Dettmann’s Bad Manners and The Exaltics’ Solar One Music in the past 12 months, the shadowy producer roves a personalised spectrum of styles here. ‘Cryformechicago’ kicks off with a grimacing dark take on Chi house equal parts Wax Trax! and Dance Mania style with wavey organ motif and industrialised jack, before switching foot to scorched electro with searing leads on ‘Pkbday’.
We’re not quite sure who’s behind the electro hydraulics of ‘Didit (Turbo Mix)’ but either way it slams as the EP’s hardest, fastest workout, while ‘Detoon’ tightens up to a class mix of Miami electro pump and nEuro synth gaze, with the slurred electro-jack of ‘Aintnopartylikeageslotencirkelparty’ mops up the crumpled bodies on the dancefloor.
