The latest release on Richie Hawtin's label isn't all that it seems. In spite of their name, Whyt Noyz delivers an EP that has very little to do with minimalism or the noisy effects that afflicted that sound. "Jingles' kick-starts the release in fist-pumping mode and its brooding dark bass is redolent of Resse-style techno. "Less Is Mo'" goes even further with squelchy sub-bass, eerie synths and sirens screeching in the background. There is some hint at minimalism on the stripped back "Closure", but its muffled vocals and grinding rhythm are only a temporary distraction and on 'One, Two, Four", Whyt Noyz bring back the bass pressure, this time accompanied by jittery piano lines.
