The undisputed king of hypnotic techno returns. Lately venturing out of the comfort zone that is his own Geophone imprint with releases on Mote Evolver, Repitch and now Amsterdam's Balans. "Transgression and Punishment" is more than just another slogan versus the world; it's an apt description for the American innovator's sound. Pounding, relentless, cavernous: these are the descriptions that come to mind when describing Parker's other wordly tracks. The title track and "Smoke From The Burning Fields" are classic Parker; reductionist and ergonomic DJ tools that loop you into submission while "The Freezing Process" delivers one of the most menacing modular snarls not seen since his epic "Forward (The 5AM Mix)". But "The Midnight Zone" is the peak time killer on offer here, with its psychotropic alien signals building gradually in modulation towards transcendental euphoria.
