Boomkat Product Review:
From the UK techno frontline, Makaton dispatches a strong session leaning from cinematic to leathering and nimble techno catering to James Ruskin’s Blueprint sound.
His follow-up to the excoriating Defiler 12” for RSB is really all about the A-side tracks. The inky black mass and crackling thunder of Durdle Dor arches up first like some Cthulhu creature seduced from the deep with classical strings, before the beastly shape of High Priestess reveals itself fully as a sort of hydraulic piledriver, equal parts Drexciya and Surgeon.
The other two cuts are more nimble, supple examples of minimal techno, riding juicy electro-bass in Coast To Coast and to a tangier, skipping schematic in Through Fire and Water, but you really just need that killer A-side.
