Hayes is a new label from Portugal and it opens its account with this storming split release. First up is Temudo, who delivers "A1", a gritty, acid-soaked loop that sounds like it was inspired by early Lost releases. Moddullar, who has put out EPs on Planet Rhythm and Dynamic Reflection, opts for a cleaner but still tough loop techno track with "Encrypt", while on Temudo hooks up with ViL and -2. The fruits of their collaboration is "Discordia", which again sees the release towards a slightly more abrasive and mysterious take on dance floor techno. Rounding off this impressive debut is ViL in solo mode, with the tough, percussive "Szandor".
