REPRESS: The Hardwax-affiliated Power House label presents its second release, now available for wider consumption following a limited run. WK7's "The Avalanche" is throbbing party techno, with a punishing kick - the centrepiece around which all other percussive elements fall - reigning blows down relentlessly: this is the sonic equivalent of sticking a firework up the dancefloors' collective backside and lighting the touch paper. Drop it down to 33 rpm on the flip for "High Power", which is just as incendiary - the key point being that these are not just dumb slices of peak time dance music - they have clearly been produced with intricate poise, with detailed nuances and obsessive attention to sound design. The Hardcore PCK mix of "Higher Power" is perhaps the pick of the bunch, with a broken beat bass drum pounding alongside off-kilter chord stabs.
