Boomkat Product Review:
**Compilation featuring tracks by Ancient Methods, AnD, Casual Violence, Mondkopf, Polar Inertia, Saåad, Shifted, Svreca, and Violetshaped** New label, Unknown Precept, sum up the state-of-play for darker, atmospheric European techno in 2013. The first half of the EP includes gloomy industrial throbbers by Polar Inertia and Saåad vs Mondkopf with rare, beatless ambient expressions from Ancient Methods and Shifted. The 2nd half cranks things up a gear with a brace of hard-nosed techno mutations taking in the finer complexities of Casual Violence's serpentine 'Beauty Mode' and the rudimentary loops of AnD's 'Reinforcement G' beside the grinding bass and atmospheric attrition of Svreca's 'Linear' and a shuddering, roiling highlight from Violetshaped. Find your spot in the shadows and dance like no one is watching.
