Hailing from Cape Town, 23-year old producer D Know has steadily risen through the ranks of the South African scene and is now breaking through into the international one. His initial inspiration came from the early sounds of IDM, jungle and trance, but here on the Bottleneck EP it's very much all about house and techno. The title track features a rumbling low end with a dubby lilt and escalating housey samples and percussion. Meanwhile DJ Vox adds thrusting arpeggios and a certain heaviness in his remix. Lastly "Progress" ends with a deep, throbbing excursion of techy progginess.
