Review: Last year saw Dense & Pika make Hotflush their home after Alex Jones and Christopher Spero's project first surfaced via a select few white label releases. Aside from a remix of the Woolford classic "Erotic Discourse", Dense & Pika have been notably quiet on the release front so this new four-track slab for Scuba's label will be most welcome. Already in possession of a warehouse-ready style of techno, the Klank EP suggests it's been further honed in their time away from the spotlight with the title cut a particularly weighty production that has a low end that growls like a dragon. From here the pair enter submerged depths on "Wandering Hands" before the B-side signals a return to more chaotic fare with "Slowhand" and "Slacker".

Review: Featuring tracks from their Colt release as well as remixes and some extra material, Update serves as a reminder of why UK duo Alex Jones and Chris Spero aka Dense & Pika are one of the most vital acts in crossover techno. The pair's "Bad Ink" is a tough, bleep-heavy roller that bristles with nervous energy, "Lack of Light" trips the light fantastic with its wild rave stabs and "Crispy Duck" veers towards bass with its stepping rhythm and gut-wrenching subs. Hotflush mainstay George Fitzgerald delivers a breathy but nonetheless driving take on "Colt", while Grain drops a heads-down, banging tribal interpretation of "Airless".

Review: Chris Spero and Alex Jones really found their sound a few years ago when teaming up as Dense & Pika. Those first couple of releases on their eponymous imprint are the stuff of legend now, not to mention the ones that followed up on Scuba's esteemed Hotflush imprint. For the Calf EP, it's served up courtesy of Adam Beyer's Drumcode, a fitting home for their tough and functional techno tools. Wasting no time messing around with the peak time destroyer 'Edging Forward" which chugs through the audio spectrum like a steamtrain, there's more adrenalin to be found on the dusty and stripped industrialism of "Drag 'N Drop" which is reminiscent of the Klockworks or the Fachwerk sound. We also enjoyed the Chicago hard house sounding title track, which gives an obvious nod to Windy City legends like Relief Records or Kne' Deep.

Lanky - (6:32) 128 BPM
from $1.88
Review: Dense & PIka cement their relationship with Drumcode with their third release on the label. "Suki" starts somewhat unexpectedly with the title track, a shimmering, chord-heavy groove, underpinned by dubby drums and a rumbling groove. It sounds slightly summery compared to most of the material that appears on Adam Beyer's imprint. By contrast, "Little Sun" is absolute beast of a track, underpinned by a churning, evil bass and relentless drums. However, the surprises don't end with the title track; "Lanky" is a big room roller, but the London duo uses mysterious strings, housey keys and a time stretched vocal to create a melancholic feeling.

Hard Light - (8:51) 130 BPM
from $1.88
Review: With releases on labels like Hotflush and Drumcode to their credit, Dense & Pika bring it back home with Amber: after all, Hypercolour was set up by Alex Jones, one half of the act. The title track focuses on dreamy hooks and blissed out vocal samples, before the pair's insistent, stepping beats kick in. It's atmospheric, but also tailor made for the dance floor. On "Hard Light", they opt for a somewhat different approach: here, the tempo is faster and the rhythm more percussive, but the pair leave enough room in the arrangement for cosmic laser stabs that sound like they were taken straight from a sci-fi thriller.
