For the second instalment in Developer's July emissions, there's four more po-faced techno workouts to be enjoyed for those who want their 4/4 focused and unforgiving. "Dirty Drive" sees Developer stretching to work a melody into his machinery, coming out with a metallic dub chord drowning in its own echo, while "Dirty Drive 2" adds some complexity to the musicality and creates an utterly engrossing hook in the process. Shifted's remix keeps a careful distance between the clean beat and the murky textures of the dubby elements, but for a real lesson in refined techno composition head straight to Stanislav Tokachev's "Building Peaks". Simplicity doesn't come more captivating than that synth line.
