"Talking 2 B Mad" is the third collaboration on Rekids between label owner Matt Edwards and upcoming producer Patrick Mason under the SRVD alias. Like the previous Eps under this name, it shows that the pair have perfected a hard-hitting techno sound. The title track cruises along in excess of 130bpm, its pummelling drums breaking down into frazzled trance riffs that have echoes of Thomas Heckmann. "Twitch" isn't quite as frenetic, but once again, it sees them dive headlong into a driving percussive sound. Powered by pounding kicks and littered with dissected vocal samples, these elements make for the most eloquent big-room techno that you'll hear this year.
