WRKTRX 3 (Jimmy Edgar remix) - (6:09) 125 BPM
Review: It sounds like David Flores aka Truncate has delved deep to come up with the tracks for his latest EP. "WRKTRX 2", which kick-starts the release, revolves around the kind of dramatic organ riff that would have been common in the darker recesses of 90s New York house. Meanwhile, "WRKTRX Rhythm 1", with its stripped back rhythm and raw percussive layers, draws inspiration from Dan Bell and even Richie Hawtin side projects like Basement Trax. On "WRKTRX 3", the US producer mines classic Beltram and even Dave Angel for a high-impact, vocal-sampling techno track, while he taps Jimmy Edgar to deliver a Detroit techno oriented take on "3", the version powered by a Juan Atkins-style bass and tight percussive volleys.

Review: For the west coast techno scene of America, Developer and Truncate are a one stop shop for club techno. Where Developer's production goes large, Truncate's focus is primitive techno minimalism - for David Flores, his peak time productions come packaged as Audio Injection. Truncate fans will notice the similarities of "Control V1" to "Concentrate" (recently commissioned for Pangaea's fabric live 73) from 2011. Truncate manages to strip back "Control V2" even more, which puts greater emphasis on the ketamine drugged computer vocal, while "Reflex V1" and "Reflex V2" are also incarnations of themselves; one minimal, the other more so.

Mira Mar (V2) - (5:42) 130 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: The 15th release on techno titan Truncate's eponymous label contains three alternative versions of previously released gems. First up you'll find a vocal-free version of angular and metallic 2011 throb-job "Focus", where relentless cymbals and two-note loops ride a pounding kick-drum pattern. Next, he unloads a bubbling, acid-fired "V2" take on 2012 jack-track "Modify" - all layered percussion, razor-sharp electronics and wayward TB-303 lines - before dedicated all of side B to a tasty alternate riff on "Mira Mar". The original was one of his deepest and dreamiest techno tracks, so it's nice to see that he's retained the warm chords and tumbling melodies amongst the delay-laden beats and gentle acid lines.

Review: West coast techno hero and Droid Behavior affiliate David Flores aka Truncate is back on his eponymous imprint, its 13th release presented here. "Wave 1" is a restrained yet suspenseful journey that's full of warm dubby elements, a dreamy bell melody and emotive strings. This one is great to lead into or out of the pre-peak time phase to make a great transition. By contrast, the offering on track 2 entitled "Hardware Jam 4" is much more intense and just like the name suggests, you can feel the raw energy of this clearly improvised track which retains all the energy and spontaneity of the occasion. A raw, stripped and powerful track on here.

Review: David Flores delivers another Truncate bullet, and as per usual, these three cuts are bundle of techno jerkers for the Berghainian dweller. Title track "Another One" is a clap-heavy head noodle with a distinctly dubby air, "Model 1" is bleepy and all guns blazing thanks to its militant groove, while "Room Mode" is the weirder of the bunch, where a warped Detroit-style bassline dominates Truncate's familiar minimalistic percussion style. Certified bombshells for the dancefloor.

Review: Truncate has attracted an impressive remix line-up for this fifth remix instalment, including a contribution from Kai Van Dongen, the winner of a remix contest. First up is Josh Wink with a bleep-laden minimal version of "Concentrate", which true to form, contains pitch bent, chopped up vocals and a cacophony of bleeps. For his take on "Reflex". Radio Slave also favours a 'less is more' approach, but on this occasion, he underpins shifting tones and chord stabs with tough tribal beats. Meanwhile, Lauren Flax's take on "Culture" is an acid-soaked jacker, while Van Dongen's take on "Missing" is a building, chord-heavy affair, full of dramatic twists.

Review: For the twentieth release on his label, Truncate drops a searing minimal track. "Repeat", with its hollowed out, rolling drums and niggling, white noise percussion, is a ferocious peak-time affair that builds and builds around its noisy central riff. Truncate has invited Luis Flores to remix the track, and the Mexican artist does a fine job; taking the sound deeper while dropping insistent percussion, he delivers a mesmerising reshape. The release also contains "El Sonido", another original production from Truncate; focused on a looped vocal sample, its discordant riffs and tight claps ensure that it will receive maximum support.
