Resist, Markus Suckut's latest album, is released on his own Exile label and plays out like a DJ set. Spread across nine 'movements', it starts with the vocal sampling, bell chiming first installment, before Suckut nudges the listener towards the dance floor with the dense rhythms of number two. However, it becomes clear that Suckut does not succumb to predictability and Resist does not follow the typical conventions of a linear DJ set. Both "Third Movement" and "Fifth Movement" are deep, rolling grooves and the fourth installment centres on a tracky house rhythm. Resist never goes for the jugular - Suckut even slips in an ambient track near the end - and it's this unwillingness to go down the obvious, banging route that makes it so alluring.
