In many ways, Dutch producer Joran Van Pol represents the new breed of European minimal techno. He has released on Sci &Tec as well as Minus, and his productions marry the effect-heavy leanings of mid-00s mmml house with big room dynamics. This is audible throughout on Edge, his latest offering for Richie Hawtin's label. "Illos" resounds to build ups, break downs and a meaty bass, while on the title track Van Pol ramps up the intensity levels with a cacophony of snare rolls and white-knuckle rhythmic intensity. "Return" features a similar approach, albeit with a more queasy bass, while "Frostbite" sees him return to the clicky, hollowed out grooves of mid-00s minimal house.
