Little is known about Percussions, save for the fact that the producer had an unreleased track on Kieran Hebden's Fabric mix. Now they find themselves on Hebden's Text imprint - leading to speculation it may be the man himself. "Bird Songs" is the kind of organic techno you'd expect to find on Text - loopy analogue bass propelled forwards with loose drums, and sampled birdsong which is nowhere near as twee as you would expect. On the flip, "Rabbit Songs" is a more abstract affair, as rubbery bass and clattering percussion are combined with a modular bleep wigout. Whoever is responsible - this is excellent.
