Swedish acid techno legend Patrik Sjern has experienced something of a career revival since an unexpected production credit on a FXHE 12" last year; this EP for the newly minted Virgo Rising label is his second of 2013 following that excellent 12" for the Fit operation out of Detroit. Not bad for someone who's been seemingly absent since a '95 12" on the Fuck Pig Recordings label. The lead cut packs similar heat to Steve Poindexter's seminal "Work That Mutha Fucker" with its hyperactive '90s-styled acid synths weaving in between hardcore Adam X industrial strength sonics. Sharing the A-side is the cut up, percussive and broken ghetto techno of "Mannitj", while Adam Rivet's remix to the title track slows in BPM, opting for something much lighter in comparison, it's equally jacking, with uplifting synths stopping the EP from becoming too much of a militant monster.
