Those who have witnessed Claude Young scratching and cutting up techno records using his nose, chin and elbow will view the amiable Detroit native as a DJ first and foremost. The reality is that he also has a strong back catalogue of releases. That said, it has been a while since he put out any new material, but this collaboration with Takasi Nakajima marks a welcome return. Rapture is a classic Detroit cut, with a menacing bassline providing the basis for breathy, airy melodies. It recalls the vintage work of Aril Brikha or later period E-Dancer. The release also finds fellow techno traveler Ian O'Brien back in the fray, and his shimmering synths and rolling, rollicking groove recalls his 'Mad Mike Disease' classic.
