"Early in 2002 Justus Köhncke's second 12" for Kompakt. '2 After 909' became something of an immediate and what proved to be highly enduring anthem for the Minimal Techno scene, still a fixture in jockeys' boxes to this day. Justus showed himself to be the master of suspense, Daft Punkish electrofunk building tension and excitement with enormous breakdowns and pickups designed to cause pandemonium at the biggest parties. Early words on this twelve, indicated that when Michael Mayer dropped this on his recent visit to Fabric/London, the audience went absolutely ballistic. The title cut is oscillating house-funk-disco shrouded in an intoxicated sheen, reaching an ambient stillpoint until a huge break ensues, as it threatens to reach crescendo point, it continues -- the feeling's almost too much -- it drops and Justus sweeps all before him. Total anthem alert! Flip for some more, err, homogeneous action, a more rolling feel, all tomtom stabs and synthed strings, huge orchestration and yet still the one note jams kill us."
