The Purification Loops may be Sigha's debut proper on Avian, but the Berlin-based producer is no stranger to the label operated by Shifted and Ventress. There have been numerous Sigha remixes on Avian releases since the label was established, and Avian have also revealed he was behind the self-styled "S & M techno tools" project A Vision Of Love. Some six tracks deep, The Purification Loops find Sigha "blurring the lines between the dance floor and the ritual chamber" and it fits right in with the direction explored recently by anonymous Swedish duo SHXCXCHCXSH on their Avian return. Prolonged repetition seems to be the order of the day, even if this takes a more meditative form on "Loop Three" or club ready in others - "Loop Four" and "Five" seem destined to test the structures of the more heady techno clubs.
