North West techno talent John Heckle offers an intriguing insight into the direction of his forthcoming long player for the Mathematics imprint with this rather good, and at times mental, full debut for the Tabernacle imprint. Heckle was involved in the inaugural release from Tabernacle last autumn, and since then his stock has risen thanks to a selection of raw wall rattlers for Jamal Moss' label. The four tracks here continue to demonstrate Heckle's mastery of drum machines and synthesisers to create a slant on techno that is infused with roughness and ear shattering potency. "R136" messes with your senses from the off, somehow managing to dice up vocal loops and loose drums in a drunken fashion yet retain rhythmic urgency, whilst drowning the expanses in wide washes of Motor City emotion. In contrast "My Only Hope" exposes Heckle's more experimental side, with heavy reliance on freeform synths muddily spraying around the dirt encrusted drum patterns. The title track withholds the aforementioned mental streak, with an army of percussion, jagged arpeggios and concrete bass quite battering your senses into submission.
