The ever-productive Pleasure Zone imprint is on a constant quest to unearth lesser-known talents in the field of minimal house and techno, and they're at it once again with the lean throwdown that arises from the partnership of Marc Philip and former Jacuzzi Boys collaborator Nils Weimann. Opening cut "18m 19n" is pure functionality, dropping a jazz-inflected beat and using just the smallest of samples for decoration over an unflinching set of drums. "Lost" meanwhile gets into a more twitchy mindset with its searching bass and delicate slithers of percussion, placing the track in an immersive hinterland caught somewhere between dancing and listening. "Neptun" rounds the EP off by doffing its cap to Pleasure Zone's love of paper thin breakbeats spoken in minimal terms, getting locked in a hypnotic cycle of the finest kind.
