Following his appearance on the Mutual Rytm compilation, Lars Huismann returns to SHDW & Obscure Shape's label with a fine, fast-paced release. "Surge" is built on a frenetic rhythm and features insistent rave stabs coupled with repetitive vocal loops, making for a lean but effective track. While "Collision" unfolds at a similar tempo, its percussive groove provides the basis for dreamy synths, and sounds inspired by classic Dave Angel techno. On a similar tip is "Sounds From the Past", where Huismann draws on lush strings and pads to create a musical but driving Detroit track with echoes of Vince Watson and Los Hermanos. This doesn't mean that Huismann neglects his club sensibilities and "Echo" is led by thundering drums and an insistent, looped vocal sample.
