Boomkat Product Review:
The Dutch legend returns from the his icy technoverse with his first new productions in some 2 years, and his first solo outing since 2002's 'Loudboxer' album. Resolutely sticking to what he does best, 'Red Shift' is purest uncut techno, taking a large step away from the industrial jack tracks and loopers of his Collabs series, and stripping it all back to a klanking brand of concentrated minimalism more familiar with Richie Hawtin's Plus 8 imprint who have published this on their Electric Deluxe sub label. It's superbly relentless and basically features two or three sounds modulated into effect to drag any responsive techno crowd along for the ride. 'Bootes' On the flip makes a return to the industrial techno scapes we all know and love dearly, with a 13 min excursion through desolate territory populated by Monolake style atmospheres and industrial rhythm patterns. Superbly cold and very functional.
