Jeroen Search kick-started Len Faki's SPC sub-label back in 2009 and now the Dutch producer brings down the curtain on it with Z. Spread over nine tracks, it showcases his lean, angular take on techno. "Metta" and "Karuna" are perfect examples of his stripped back approach, with tonal bleeps teased out over high-paced rhythms, while "Tensile Force" sees him lay down nightmarish synths over a pulsing, pumping bass. However, there are exceptions to his usual dance floor techno sound; "Upekkha" is a minimal house groove in the DBX vein and "Compressive Strength" is a haunting, spooky ride. As farewells go, it's an impressive one.
