Gunnar Wendel's Ominira label swing back into the line of sight for their first release of the year and it finds the excellent Noleian Reusse at the helm. Known for his ongoing Africans With Mainframes project alongside Jamal Moss, Reusse does possess a small but deadly solo discography for Mathematics, Love What You Feel and his own Black Tekno label. Given that this Ominira 12" is also called Black Tekno, it's evidently a concept that is close to Reusse. Across the three tracks, the US producer really shows his range, with "Venus In Scorpio" a quite dreamy opener that pairs up lazy acid lines with loose limbered drums and yearning chords. Following this, "3rd Layer" veers off into fidgeting and unpredictable 303 madness whilst "Gun Romance" strips back proceedings for a more abstract finale.
