the second of the three vinyl eps featuring tracks from perc trax’s ‘slowly exploding’ compilation groups together three of the label’s main artists and closes with a producer making his perc trax debut. the a1 slot goes to label boss perc, whose ‘hyperlink’ builds on the sound of the dancefloor tracks of his last album with a huge kick giving way to swooping 8-bit chords whilst sawf’s ‘goves’, already tried and tested by perc over the last few months is an unrelenting breakbeat monster. on the b-side truss delivers one of the stand-out tracks of this series, with the surgeon supported analogue juggernaut that is ‘brockweir. closing things off is drvg cvltvre, who lowers the tempo but not the intensity with one of his trademark 303 workouts.
perc trax vs. polegroup is a collaboration between percs imprint perc trax and polegroup, in which each of the labels champions their recognizable dark techno sound, with their own clear identity and vision of the current techno scene.
full 11 track cd album from perc trax mainstay sawf. packaged in deluxe metal tin with card insert / foam insert to protect the cd. limited stock only. perc trax is proud to unveil the debut album from mysterious greek producer sawf. it was just over 2 years ago when sawfs first demo arrived at perc trax. the email contained little information and sawf claimed it was the first time he had ever sent his music to a label. from the first listen to those early tracks it was clear that sawf was something different. his music was tough and industrial with easily enough individuality to raise it above the then current glut of generic mnml and washed-out dub techno. after initial releases sawfs bloody minded take on techno was starting to build momentum. two further eps followed, each widening sawfs palette of sounds to take in house and broken beat influences without his sonic aesthetic ever being compromised. so now we find ourselves with >flaws<, 11 tracks of pure sawf. heavy rhythms, dense atmospherics and one mans crystal clear vision of how techno should sound in 2011. across the dance floor tracks, techno, house and broken beat rhythms fight for your attention as cut-up vocals and soundtrack string lines glide over the beats.
