Making a return to Delsin with his first full release for the label after the excellent Framework LP from last year, the uber-prolific Mike Dehnert delivers an EP which is something of a departure from his usual sound, but no less essential for it. "Andruck" sees Redshape-style synths cast adrift over a pulsating bass, loose cowbell with a distinct lack of 4/4 present, while "Tracer" goes for the jugular with its combination of Millsian bleeps and subtle but gravelly dub chords. "Refillable" will go down well with fans of Skudge and Shed, combining a relentless rolling rhythm, fluid, twisting, filtered stabs and indistinct vocals, while closer "Umgangston" is built around a ravey chord sequence which fluctuates in and out of intensity with a freeform manner. Dehnert must be one of techno's most dependable producers, and he's come up trumps once again.
