||2.||"Mind Transfer" (Claro Intelecto remix)|
Belgian imprint Mowar chalk up an impressive way to toast reaching their tenth release, unveiling a new talent in the shape of Searle, as well as securing a remix from Modern Love icon and recent Delsin addition Claro Intelecto! From the opening strains of lead track "Mind Transfer", it's clear the mysterious Searle prefers to occupy the darker, more claustrophobic recesses of the techno spectrum, sounding like Jamal Moss in one of his more concise moments, all intricately nuanced drum programming, alien vocal intonations and subterranean acid glitches. It's this track that Claro Intelecto tackles, spreading the original's acidic elements into an expansive bed of submerged sound upon which rhythmic elements are slowly built - first the metallic textures, then the throbbing kick drums and eventually more percussive elements. The accompanying tracks on the flip are just as impressive, with "Succubus" swiftly establishing itself as a burrowing 4am trip through Something In The Sky style techno and "Unauthorized" revealing itself to be a paranoia inducing production characterised by patterns of alien percussion.
