A year after his extremely versatile debut EP for Figure, Viers comes out with another batch of tunes that again set him apart from his peers both in production value and creativeness. Touching on the tropes of classic detroit techno, Saxton presents a beautifully delicate opening track, rife with life from within the machines while still steadily thumping ahead. It’s the mix of this vital momentum together with a certain restraint, allowing each element to breath. So much that even the slightest adjuments cause maximum effectmetro, as felt on suitably titled stomper Nothing Changed where everything hits in exactly the right place. Same goes for the incessant dialogue of tones on Zehn, which Sigha expands into a pensive piece, layering soothing washes of synths. Not only an exceptional EP in its own right, Figure 85 further cements Viers as a skilled craftsman with seemingly endless imagination.
