Although he's still in his mid-20s, Portuguese producer Fautzi has already released on Soma, Figure and Pole Group. Now he brings his singular take on dance floor techno to Tsunami. Both "Illusion" and "Unheard" are heavy, relentless grooves, the former consisting of tense acidic pulses and quick-fire percussion, the latter revolving around distorted kicks and militaristic snares that are shot off like machine-gun volleys from a sniper's nest. Fautzi reveals his softer side on "Bound", where eerie textures are married to rolling, dubby bass. However, this release is primarily concerned with the harder end of techno; this is also evident on the Christian Wunsch reshape of "Bound", where broken beats are shot like grenade shrapnel over the original track's dub textures.
