Review

Milanese techno outpost M_Rec continue to flex hard in 2014, with its seventh release so far this year introducing the talents of US newcomer Allen. Some four tracks deep, the Gravity Assist EP suggests Chris Allen is keenly attuned to the future glancing sounds that characterised much of techno's first wave and how to translate that approach in a manner appealing to the modern techno selectors and collectors. In the case of the opening title track, it's the laser-like bassline that pulses with kinetic energy, with Allen wisely keeping the rhythmic elements to a minimum. The subsequent "EM26" is reminiscent of Something In The Sky era Mills, whilst "MH370" pairs morse code style bleeps with trimmed drum textures. Final track "Kepler" sees Allen unleash something approaching a brooding techno monster to round out a confident debut from this newcomer.
