To date, John "Yak" Randall has released a string of superb singles for the likes of Version, 3024 and R&S that giddily blur the boundaries between techno, bass music and densely layered tribal drum workouts. Somewhat predictably, the Sheffield-based producer is at it again on the "Gerudo EP". Opener "Zip" peppers African style tribal drums and raw Motor City techno bass with the kind of ear-catching bleeps that were once a Steel City staple, before the jumpy and upbeat "Guevenne Groove" wraps positive, glassy-eyed synthesizer motifs around sweaty, loose-limbed live drumming. "Fret" is a spaced out, bass-heavy two-step number laden with intergalactic electronics and undulating bass, while closing cut "Gerudo" brilliantly joins the dots between tribal rhythms and shimmering deep house.
