While the misguided and misinformed continue to debate the right for tech house to exist thankfully there' are still many producers making intricately detailed and intelligently programmed beats out there, in turn keeping the genre bursting with potential. Such is the case with this four tracker from Norwegian duo TAR 1337, AKA Terje Bakke and Rub800. Opening on a dubby, minimal tip, 'Init Patt' develops one of the most surprisingly madcap hooks we've heard in ages- hearing is understanding. 'VCult' is perhaps the track its precursor could have been, growing into a layered, immersive darkroom workout with sweatier results. 'Relax Nothing Is Under Control' bridges the gap into sharp, non-banging techno stuff, a dirty number with bags of compelling noises keeping you locked in. Rounding out on the more spatial 'Tranquility Base', this is mature, highly usable stuff.
