About the release:

Killer EP of hypnotic late-night techno from the rapidly maturing dark arts imprint. The brooding ‘point blank’ kicks things off, combining twisted low end darkness with eerie orchestral stabs and immense claps – a darkly elegant opening. Next up, ‘panic’ is an essential joint, riding in on a tightly-controlled broken rhythm before a unique, string-heavy motif provides the intrigue. Side 2 opens with the tensile funk of ‘downstream’ – a sleek, driving dancefloor offering to get lost in, with space-aged atmospherics and bristling percussion sitting astride a tunnelling techno groove. Finally the motorik ‘ricochet’ combines submerged dub textures with slinky synth work – a strong closing statement for this towering record. TIP!
With support from the likes of DVS1, nd_Baumecker, Answer Code Request and Alex Do, dark arts is becoming an essential label.
