Boomkat Product Review:
Blawan returns with 'Warm Tonal Touch', a cold-hearted modular techno assault on the senses. It's also the first release on his Teresc label and represents a scything new streak in his oeuvre harnessing the maximalist might of modular electronics. As with any instrument, it's only as good as the artist's imagination and intentions, and, whilst other operators manage to make their machines sound frankly boring, Blawan manages to animate his discipline with visceral force and effect. A-side unloads the lip-bitingly brutal wallop and noise of 'Talatone' plus a clattering, dissonant jacker entitled 'Fenatyl'; B-side banks the evil drones and thunderous pelt of 'Slow Mick', plus the pulsing roil and calving modular shapes of 'Blue Bottle'. Crucial new techno.
