Haider is the brains behind London label Breaker Breaker, and so far he has been happy to release material by producers like Ross From Friends and Tokyo's RGL. That's all set to change this year as Haider himself steps from the shadows to deliver two EPs and then an album. Love is a stunning debut release: it starts with the dusty beats and murky bass of "Dreams of U", with the arrangement morphing to include hushed synths and rattling percussion. "Retrofuturist" is even more impressive: over a stepping arrangement, the label boss calls to mind classic Detroit techno and electro as warm bass tones are intermingled with evocative, tingling melodies. Rounding off this exemplary release is a more visceral track, the grainy acid of "Fukouttahere", but all three tracks mean that Haider's album is sure to be one of this year's highlights.
