Boomkat Product Review:
On his first Silent Servant 12” in time, Sandwell District don and longtime LA warehouse ambassador Juan Mendez dances between EBM muscle and Detroit/Brum-style techno for Tresor.
The return of one of the c.21st’s most revered techno figures, an ode to the act of chasing vintage body music dragons, dialling up classic spirits with a forthright energy that shows reams of young usurpers how to do it in your own way.
The session is dominated by classic EBM muscle attuned to new flesh. ‘M-87’ gets his Front 242 rocks off with thrumming 16th note bassline and rictus machine rhythm offset by gorgeous sylvan pads, vocals lurking in the shadows, and ‘M-90’ amps the synth goth aspect, glazing a prowling step with wickedly dead-eyed tones. His links to Detroit, NYC and Brum techno brim in the searing dub chord rider ‘M-99’, and he rounds off with the venomous lash of ‘M-00’ echoing classic Belgian EBM techno as much as the 313 variants of Code Industry and the monochrome Berlin set.
