Berlin juggernauts SW and SVN are known for attracting techno sharks as soon as their 12s drop on our charts. In fact, these never stay around long, and it's because there just simply isn't anything else that sounds quite like it. While each SUED is wildly different from the next, they have got a particular aesthetic on absolute lock-down! Blending elements of minimal, techno, house and something unexplainably tropical, they have instilled a new sound for Berlin, and a new standard to adhere to. First things first, they're all about the hardware gear, and that's clear form the way these records sound out of the speakers; SVN's "Machine 5" is a functional yet melodic slice of deep techno that stretches the boundaries of the genre to new and exciting heights, and "Dark Plan 8" is his signature ambient flex, bringing in hard doses of rhythmic bass. On the flip, SW churns out a deep, slo-mo loop jam with a firmly dubwise vibe, and "Latenightmix" provides another magnificent helping of kinetic ambient - a true pleasure on the systems. Recommended, as always.
