Stefan Vincent - "I Would Give Anything To Feel Nothing"
Par Grindvik - "Stay In Wild"
Review: This new various artist release on Stockholm Limited comes brimming with North European talent, kicking off with Jesper Dahlback's The Persuader alias exploring haunting ambient pastures on "Pressure Relief". Jeroen Search and Dimi Angelis meanwhile have a more trancey, pulsing quality to their own beatless exploration, while Stefan Vincent enjoys two separate outings in which to deliver blissful new age drone and punchy techno respectively. Par Grindvik then finishes up the 12" with a taut, techy throwdown full of late night intensity in a neat foil to the elegant ambient tackle on the A side.
Review: Amsterdam's heroes of the underground return on their on their own beloved imprint for some more of what this dynamite duo have become renown for; epic, cyclical peak time techno! On the A side "Reprise 01" is unashamedly Millsian with its film score style strings persisting alongside a bell melody and the hiss of a 909 hi-hat. "Reprise 02" hammers the message home some more with its kick that tears through the speaker and its entrancing, minimalist melody.. But just wait until those laser zaps come in. On the flip "Reprise 03" and those resonated dub chords loop you into submission but not before "Reprise 04" and its pounding reductionist style proves why these two of the top techno producers of the moment. Tip!
