Innervate's latest offering provides an insight into how modern techno and house producers have assimilated, magpie-like, previous styles and tropes while forging their own identities. While Larix's "Phantom" is the most conventional of the pack, its reverberating filters provide a glimpse of late 90s party techno influences, Kereni's "Major Bass" has a more contemporary flavour, with microscopic beats and doubled up rhythms. However, it's Woo York's "Batiskaf" that provides the real revelation. Sounding like an update on the dark drums sound of late 90s prog, the use of an ominous droning, filtered bassline also gives "Batiskaf" a truly contemporary feeling.
