Like his other release this week, Deformer, Ukraine producer Yan Cook offers tough techno as a starting point on Berg before delving into more experimental directions. In its original form, "Mill" sees Cook drop stomping beats and a churning filter before the arrangement veers into cavernous claps and resonating bleeps, while the Unbalance version is more subtle, using phased percussive licks and grungy filters. From there on in, Berg moves increasingly towards the abstract. The title track is led by a stepping rhythm and swirling chords, while "Dot" is an off the wall jam, anchored by wild bassy splurges and dense filters. Completing the release is Jeff Rushin & Nicole Rosie's take on "Mill", an understated, stripped back techno groove.
