Following two superb, floor-friendly EPs from Disco Nihilist and Neville Watson, Don't Be Afraid's occasional Special Editions series returns with a typically bombastic EP from British techno stalwart Colin "Mr. G" McBean. Predictably, McBean is in ruthless form, delivering a trio of sweaty, late night assaults in his distinctive no-nonsense style. "Tutonic" is particularly punchy, layering hazy after-party chords and occasional keys over a formidably restless groove (think five-note bass, thumping kicks, powerful handclaps and incessant cymbals). There's a dubbier, acid-flecked feel to the hypnotic "Last Chance Saloon (Mango Boy's Plantation Dub)", while the thrilling "Rum Trip Up" sounds like it was inspired by early bleep techno explorations by Juno, Ability 2, Ital Rockers and Xon.
