Review

The second of Answer Code Request's two 12"s for Marcel Dettmann's MDR imprint sees three more rough techno cuts with 90s influences. A-side track "The Host" has echoes of Shed in its hypnotic metallic snares and looping, malfunctioning synth line. On the flip, the producer clearly indulges his tendencies for 90s IDM with "Thu", a combination of ambient Aphex style melody and minimal D&B rhythms, while "Mikro" combines a heavily panned line of kosmische-style arpeggio, deep sub-bass and skittering breakbeats. If you're familiar with Answer Code Request's material you'll know this is essential stuff - if not, the there's no better time to become acquainted.
