Dutch techno legend Bart Skils is still going! First breaking into the scene nearly a decade ago with powerful main room exploits on local imprint 100% Pure (which were championed by all the big DJs of the time like Richie Hawtin and Paul Ritch) and he's still relevant today - if this release on top techno label Drumcode is anything to go by. He's been a staple of Adam Beyer's imprint since 2013, where he's presented nearly a dozen EPs in that time. On Bells Of The Revolution, the title track uses Millsian FM melodies in sublime and hypnotic fashion, over powerful and cavernous rhythm patterns to rock any warehouse trave. He gets even more steely and austere on the heads-down power tool "Ocean Drive" which finishes up the A side. On the flip, "Retrograde" goes for a more hypnotic and ethereal vibe, plus that vocal from a certain mainstream dance hit of the early '90s is a nice touch indeed. Finally, things take a more optimistic and uplifting route on the funky, acid led antics of "Vocalized".
