Boomkat Product Review:
New cut from Mike Huckaby, produced for inclusion on his new 20 Years of Tresor mix. These days Huckaby is probably best known for his deeper house tracks and his long-standing jazz obsession (thrillingly evinced on his recent Sun Ra edits), but he has deep roots in, and a skilful command of, harder techno in the Tresor style. His mix features Rob Hood, Surgeon, Joey Beltram, Jeff Mills and the rest, and his own 'The Tresor Track' is more than tough and driving enough to be in such company. It's still pretty dubby - the influence (conscious or otherwise) of BC/Chain Reaction is palpable, and the rigid kicks and clipped chords are strongly reminiscent of Shed's mighty WAX and EQD warehouse tools. Techno doesn't get much more direct, or much better.
