Boomkat Product Review:
Following on from the frustratingly scarce teaser twelve “lacan/episode” that sold out in a single afternoon, mark stewart is back with his first release for modern love available for wider public consumption. A sort of thankyou for everyone’s patience. Of course, patience is a virtue that the techno community has had to become well versed in over the last couple of years. patience for the full structure of tracks to emerge. Patience for that barely noticeable narrative that infects only the most developed forms of what has become known as “minimal”. “Patience” is a masterclass in self restraint and redux, an apt title for the opening track on this perfectly formed EP. It will remind you of warehouse parties in a blurred haze of hindsight, an acid klunk stripped into a fragmented prism of colours - melodic yet utterly determined to stick to its agenda. this is machine music perfectly honed for the body. The flipside is much fuller; pregnant with abandon and fizzing chemicals, a widescreen adaptation of chicago anthems imbued with a startling effortlessness - a claro “special” as some people have already christened it. Mighty.
