Rising stars of the Berlin tech house scene and charted by the Von Strokes and the Dubfires, AKA AKA return with Ich & Du, another EP of odd minimal grooves for Oli Koletzki's label Stil vor Talent. The title track has a typically smooth jacking groove with a perfect build, aided and abetted by some distinctive vocals from Umani. Originally released on Koletzki's digital Talent offshoot last year"4 Fauste fur ein Hallelulja" takes a step up and impresses with sub bass stabs and bulging kick drums rubbing up against neat vocal edits and the peculiar sound of someone getting a kicking. Finishing off is the Latin guitar tinged filtered techno strangeness of "Sandpiper" where a looped vocal collides wonderfully with a sampled beat box and a chunky kick.
