For their latest release, Pan-Pot have commissioned some of the biggest names in techno to rework their Weltlinie release from earlier this year. In its original format, the EP moved from the dreamy, driving title track and the menacing tribal techno of "Startphase" into the rattling rhythms of "Exzentrisch" and the rave-friendly builds of "Zeit". In Gregor Tresher's hands, the title track turns into a surprisingly understated house groove, while by contrast Gary Beck re-imagines "Startphase" as a pounding, peak time techno beast. Shlomi Aber's version of "Exzentrisch" is more nuanced than the original, thanks mainly to its skeletal groove, while Deas strips "Zeit" down and creates a pounding, loopy workout.
