Review: The London based producer Heretic returns with this great EP. With releases on hot imprints such as Relish, Days of Being Wild, Nein and My Favourite Robot, he is on fire at the moment! The brilliant opener "Recursive" is classic house at its finest, with rave organs and hip-house breakbeats: not to mention that 'druggy' sampled dialogue over the top. Very cheeky! Next up is the title track which is a slow burning and tunnelling 303 acid trip. It also uses some sharp breakbeats to great effect but in more subtle fashion. Then there is a remix from Berlin's Marlon Hoffstadt of "Recursive". This is a much more uptempo and euphoric rendition, which again channels the classic vibes from yesteryear to sunning effect.
Review: Since debuting under his given name in 2017 (before that he delivered solo productions as Heretic), Eskimo Twins member Timothy Clerkin has released must-check music on Ransom Note Records, Insult To Injury, Throne of Blood, and now Sprechen. His brand of psychedelic nu-disco tends towards the cosmic and otherworldly, and that's exactly what opener "War Wolf" delivers: think tumbling analogue synthesizer melodies, chugging grooves, raw bass and Enigma-style synth-flute lead lines. In contrast, "Acid Drive" is a bold and bright affair build around wild TB-303 acid lines, baggy piano riffs and bleeping, eyes-closed melodies, while closing cut "Bleak House (Clerkin's Reprise Mix)" - made in collaboration with "Night Giants" - is a moody, pitched-down take on dreamy, acid-flecked breakbeat house.
