Man of the moment Dax J is back with more doom laden and treacherous techno. The Monnom Black head honcho is this time launching The Invisible Man EP at us. Featuring on the A side we've got "The Wonk" but there's no Life & Death style melodies on this one: that stuff could only wish to be as fierce as this peak time adrenalizer. The title track is a rough acid techno stomper reminiscent of something on his last Shades Of Black album. On the flip "Wir Leben Fur Die Nacht" reminds us that yes he lives in Berlin, he most likely passed his Deutsch A1 class and indeed we do all live for the night etc but this sounds more like Sunday mass at Berghain: an industrial strength menace that is absolutely ferocious! A surprise addition is the dark and immersive ambient journey "Surrender" featuring Cat Yen's curious Chinese dialogue drenched in delay.
