Having plied his trade on labels across the world, Liverpudlian analogue explorer John Heckle sticks closer to home with this EP, popping up on local label Scenery. Heckle's approach to house - raw, uncompromising, exciting and more than a little eccentric - is perfectly suited to Asok's imprint. "Laid Away" surges from the speakers like some long lost Detroit classic, whilst retaining Heckle's unique sound, while "DDT" is a fearsome chunk of robust acid blessed with a seriously heavy bassline. It compliments the track's intense drum machine anarchy perfectly. Remix wise, there's a deeper, woozier take on the title track by Perseus Traxx, while Ksoul and Muteoscillator turn the same cut into an exotic, Afro-tinged analogue deep house gem.
Ireland's Lunar Disko is back in the game with another one of their immensely entertaining collaborative EPs, and this one is featuring a selection of artists whom we feel particularly fond of. For starters, our man man John Heckle is in the place repping the UK-side of techno, leading the lines with the wonky, off-kilter electro-acid cut named "Steel Sky", while label regular Conan comes through with an insanely lo-fi techno cut called "Neptune Racing" that feels like it was made in the basement of a sweaty Chicago studio circa 1989. 214, who is another familiar face, drops an aerial attack in the form of a paranoid, brooding artillery of glitchy electro by the name of "Deep Ellum", whereas VC-118A's relatively more placid "Face The Waves" delves into a much deeper and floaty downtempo mode for the early, early sets...
