Float is home to well-known names like Sleeparchive and Tensal, but the Dutch imprint also supports newer artists like Altinbas. Having previously appeared on one of the label's compilations, this upcoming artist is given free reign to deliver a full EP. "SZ01" is a lean, lithe techno stepper, like the steely resolve of vintage Frozen Border mixed with Regis' more playful style. On "Intonation", Altinbas switches to murky techno that packs a punch thanks to the dense kicks that underpin its grungy textures. "Emphasis" is a droning, abstract affair, while on the title track, Altinbas goes for the jugular with a psychedelic slice of club techno. It's an impressive debut release.
