Juxta Position is an alias for Mark Hawkins, the producer behind Marquis Hawkes. In contrast to that project, Juxta Position provides a pure techno sound. Hawkins has already released EPs on DVS1's Mistress and Failsafe 01 offers more of this material. On "Sutartines", he lays down a gritty, raw groove that welcomes the haunting chatter of spirits from a supernatural world. "Machines" features a linear, heads-down groove, but here too, Hawkins doesn't opt for a lazy approach, and spacey textures swirl over the tight percussive licks and tough, dense kicks. This is an essential release for fans of purist techno.
