Back in the 90s, US techno producer Steve Stoll released an EP on white vinyl in the shape of a circular saw. The art for the latest release on DJ Haus' label looks similar to that release - and doesn't sound radically different either. In fact, the only real difference to Stoll's 1995 release is the absence of forceful acid pulses - otherwise, P.O.L Style's "Saw" and the "Saw 2" version crackle with insistent percussion, insistent stabs and an insistent, jacking rhythm. Remixes from Mike Q and Neana, which add a banging, drum-heavy sensibility to the original "Saw", complete the package.
Before we say anything, here's what the artist blurb said: "This is what happens when 3 Tumblr personalities manage to transcend time and space and use virtual reality to create some of the most warped ghetto house and techno this side of Second Life." There is no way we're going to argue with that. Heavy duty aggression mixed with a massive dose of slow-release intensity reaching through each tune makes this four tracker a must-cop for techno and deep house heads looking for something harder. Be brave. Just try it, you never know, you might like it.
