German label Ressort describes itself as providing techno that is the soundtrack for "dark nights filled with stroboscopic flashes, fog and frenzy". Listening to Documents, it's hard not to understand why they make this claim. Ekserd's "Hidden Document 1" is an insanely heavy groove, its gained drums and pounding groove nonetheless shot through by a swinging sensibility. The second "Document" instalment is deeper and more musical, but the drums are still robust and teem with power. There are no such elements on I/Y's version of "Hidden Document", where a growling bass prevails over a pacy groove, while the Svreca take on "Document II" is a synth-heavy techno workout. Working with Array Access, Ekserd brings the release to a close with the broken drums and swirling melodies of "Wons".
