Following on from 2020's Timelapse release, prolific producer Axel Karakasis returns to Planet Rhythm with another lean techno EP. "Hermes" represents a more offbeat than usual approach, as dubbed out percussion is fused with a stepping rhythm. On the title track, Karakasis reverts to his typical style, with a relentless acid line building and building over militaristic percussion and relentless kick drums. "Outspread" continues in this vein and the snarling 303s are replaced by repetitive stabs that are then combined with a pounding rhythm. There's no let-up either on "Fertile", with the Greek artist conjuring up dramatic filters that reverberate against a driving, steely arrangement.
