It's deep, reflective techno on offer this time from the consistent Echovolt label. Ignore the Reflektor's pacy rework of the title track and head instead for the sun-kissed, sublime grooves of 'WA4.Sun' and 'Da3w.U'.
One of those tracks that lies in wait, doing not very much at all, before clocking you over the back of the head with one huge moment. When it comes, it's more than worth the wait.
Like Marcellus, Cook is part of a new wave of European producers - can he distinguish himself from the established set of techno artists? In truth, 'Lighthouse' and 'Nylon' are well-executed but hardly revelatory, revolving around tough, dubby beats, doubled-up claps and mysterious, droning textures. However, when Cook departs from the script, he really impresses. In particular, 'Morse' shifts from stepping rhythms to a pulsing, buzz-saw bass, while 'Suspense' features the kind of jarring riffs and wild siren wails that makes it sound like vintage Joey Beltram, updated for 2014.
Y'know how Miles Davis used to lean on his keyboards and make a fantastic racket? That's the needling sound that threads itself like barbed wire throughout this spacious, spooked production from Oddissee and yr damn right he knows EXACTLY what he's doing. Great rhymes from the Diamond District trio make this way more than just a Brucie Bonus, more like a boon from the depths of hell and the heights of heaven. Love the way towards the end it all drops down to pure piano and dread. Love the way it feels like it WILL NOT STOP unhinging you. Super stoopid fresh.
