German label Affin impresses with a release that showcases a deeper but darker take on techno music. Danish DJ Patrick Bateman kicks off the release with Woo York's remix of "Oxo 2". Centred on deep, layered chords, it unfolds gradually over a rolling, dubby groove and provides a taster for what is to come. The Joachim Spieth remix of Platypus' "The Streets Have A Voice" follows Bateman's contribution, leaning towards a deep but more ominous approach, while Viktoria Rebeka's "Radiation Menu" ramps up the intensity thanks to a dark, bass groove and an ominous swarm of bleeps. Finally, Mattias Fridell's "Life Recycling Law" is slightly more melodic thanks to its catchy hooks, but the same textured, menacing feeling prevails.
