PTTRN follow up strong releases on labels like MindTrip and Float with a first high energy offering for Token. The record also marks Mike Parker’s first outing on the label with a stunning remix in his inimitable style.
A natural fit for Token, the Belgian duo serve up a neat package of rolling contemporary Techno – driven but dynamic and broad in terms of tone. The production is decidedly refined and riffs on the classic posits of the genre, making the very most of very little.
Opener Disappear 1 sets the scene: immediate, metallic material for the dance-floor and Disappear 2 doesn’t let the energy dip – a slice of pure peak time Techno executed with considerable deftness. Closing out the A side, Disappear 3 opens things up, a marginally more airy take on the same dense, rhythmic work. On the B side Disappear 4 goes deeper and more hypnotic but doesn’t lose the energy that defines the record before segueing into Parker’s remix – a powerful dose of the classic sound that has made the artist one of the true mainstays of the genre.
