Mythic Lowlands collective Lost Trax believe in the purity of techno as an art form, maintaining their anonymity over the past ten years to ensure the focus remains "on the music, not the face or fashion behind it." After intermittent transmission the past decade, recent months have seen the Lost Trax machine in full flow with this Flatliner 12" for Shipwrec arriving mere months after they appeared on the Dutch label via The Return split release. Some four tracks deep, this clear marbled 12" finds Lost Trax exploring the outer galactic realms of the techno utopia, with lead track "Faith" a towering highlight. Clap heavy techno is the order of the day on the title cut, whilst "Lost" sinks deep into the swamp of squelchy 303ness. Proceedings end on a high with the vintage electro shimmer of "Renderer".
