When they first emerged in the early 1990s, Lou Robinson's mysterious Scan 7 collective was compared favourably to fellow Detroit techno militants Underground Resistance (for the record, they are loosely affiliated). "Burdens Down", their first single for Belgian label Elypsia since 2001, sees them in fine form, delivering a title track that brilliantly joins the dots between Terrence Parker style gospel techno and bouncy, piano-driven house. Fittingly, Parker delivers a cheery, organ and piano heavy radio edit that pushes the track's gospel roots to the fore. The EP's other cut, "Thank You Lord", jogs even further towards New Jersey gospel house territory whilst retaining the futurist ethos and rhythmic structure of Detroit techno.
