Long running party-turned-label The Bunker New York has in the space of a year become a reliable source for forthright techno. This latest missive continues that theme, delivering a second collaborative Romans EP from Gunnar Haslam and acid obsessive Tin Man. They go in hard from the off, blending extended analogue bass, metronomic rhythms and wiggly acid lines on "Enoma". There's a classic bleep feel about the ghostly chords on "Coptos", which seemingly float above a hard-as-nails techno groove. They seem to soften a little on "Delenium", which pairs the uplifting, end-of-night ethos of progressive house with classic Detroit techno sounds.
