Figure arrives at its 60th release with label mainstay Markus Suckut. The young German producers sound easily represents some of the most focused, intense and immediate techno around, and he continues his fine run of form with three unique tracks on Figure 60.
Over nine minutes 'Abandonedt' graces the A side in a snaking, intense industrial journey perfectly set up for moments of high drama. A throbbing, acidic bassline winds itself around the central axis of the track, with washes of rave-inspired pads adding extra momentum. A more reduced affair, 'Corp' is classic Suckut territory. Giving the DJ room to work, while providing an incredibly solid backbone of mysterious psycho-funk, Markus takes us deep into his dark, loop world of submerged sub-sonics and rattling percussion. The slower paced, dubby vibes of 'March' complete the EP as an addictive filtered vocal sample emerges amongst sharply snapping snares and fluffy hats. Bringing out the magic in the groove with only a few elements, its yet another masterclass in modern minimalism. (added: 2014-10-06 13:55:25 )
