Reflecting Silhouettes

Four tracks of diverse and different techno make up Deep Sound Channel’s first compilation. Past alumnus Tripeo returns with the hulking tribalism of “Raz.” Breaks are built and rebuilt, demolished and razed in this gritty thumping workout. Najem Sworb, of Clone and AI fame, is up next with the warbling atmospherics of “Io Ice” before Matt TdK delivers the frigid and frosted “4714.” The finale is a smouldering sign off. Jelle Groen, under his Modular Scapes alias, serves a brooding acid infused piece bathed in 90s IDM flows. Limited to 250 coloured copies in a printed sleeve.

B1 MATT TDK – 4714

Juno Review

Shipwrec’s sub-label has been as supportive of techno as its parent’s championing of techno, and this is audible on this split release. Tripeo opens it with the screeching, metal-plated “Raz”, an intense, peak-time track that recalls Jay Denham and Jeff Mills. Once the dust settles, Najem Sworb resets the mood with the dense, dubby techno of “Io Ice”. Matt TDK’s “4.7.14” is in a similar vein, although on this occasion, cold, chiming bleeps accompany the resonating bass. The mellowest contribution is left till last, with Modular Scape’s “Reflecting Silhouettes” revolving around trippy acid pirouettes and 90s-style, complex Black Dog rhythms.
