Review: Seilscheibenpfeiler Schallplatten Berlin
Lory D is one of European techno's unsung heroes, but his profile has risen steadily in recent years thanks to Eps on Wireblock and Numbers. Jam With Deaf Cats will also do his reputation no harm. "Acid-Cls 2" is a storming, old school acid techno affair, the kind of material that used to appear on ACV. On "Torn-3-33", a similar 90s aesthetic prevails; exceeding 130bpm, it's a pacy, wiry workout that resounds to wild yelps, bleeps and blips. "Elk-50" is slower and drum-heavy, as the Italian artist explores a more cavernous, spacious arrangement. Remaining in that territory is Marcel Dettmann's take on "Sbinson", a frazzled, hazy affair, led by tough, punchy kicks.
