Recall/Wiretap, from Manchester's Alex Coulton, follows his stark, atmospheric contribution to the 2014 compilation Tempa Allstars Vol. 7 (TEMPA 094EP), and furthers his ultra-stripped-back, rhythm-driven aesthetic of techno refracted through a sub-heavy sound-system prism. Hypnotic, sidewinding rhythms, packing intense, percussive energy for peak-time 'floors. "Recall" is a gradually unfurling firestorm of distorted kick drums, reverb, and molten sub-bass, which repeatedly dies away to near-silence before returning with twice the impact. On the flip, "Wiretap" is lighter but no less intense; a whirling assembly of drums, warping bass, and freakily catchy struck melodies that's as tough yet elastic as tensile steel.
