Ismail Genc has been making some pretty killer techno under the name Havantepe, and we're particularly into his style of dance music because it goes back to the roots of the genre, straying close to the 'dub' end of the spectrum that was pioneered by the likes of Basic Channel. However, tunes like the opening "The Hollow Ghost" has enough drive at its core to render it playable even in the middle of a peak-time set, with the same going for the relatively more somber melodies of "Wandering Through Crowds". "Face Down" is a bubbling techno melter with a rough beat pattern and a bouncy bassline, whereas "Half Dull" lashes out subtle waves of 303 glory from every angle. A tight, masterfully executed EP.
