Ulf Erikson's label has been one of the techno success stories of recent years, and this is mainly down to the owner's ability to release diverse music with a common thread. In Kondens's case, glitchy, stop-start rhythms abound, but underneath the splintered rhythms sits the same kind of dreamy, tranced out melodies that featured on the recent remixes of Alter & Jonsson. "0451" sees Kondens go more out on a limb, with the glitchy, skewed percussion and heavy broken beat occupying centre stage. Berghain's Norman Nodge has been commissioned to remix the title track, and once again Kontra surprises. Instead of jaw-clenching depravity, the rework is a swirling, hypnotic dub techno affair, gentler than a room full of Quakers.
