This is Swedish producers Johan Skugge and Mikael Stavöstrand's fourth release on Onitor. Minimal and Mitek sounds not only great together, it really belongs together. It does not mean that the system of these Swedish producers is limited to minimal -- they also like it hot and sweaty when producing their tracks. Stavöstrand has managed within the last year to establish himself in the genre as an important key player with releases for labels like Force Inc. and Mille Plateaux. His clear and magnifying vision of techno, spiced with electronica and arty-moments makes everybody fall in love. Last spring saw the release of an amazing dubby and minimal collaboration between Stavöstrand and Skugge, which cemented the duo as a successful and melodically dance-oriented pair. This time around, the tracks come in a huge variety. Humla is hectic, but still finds its balance enough to head straight for the dance floor. These are academic and structured dance tunes, with flashes of deconstructed hedonism, as Skugge and Stavöstrand utilize a never-ending flow of changes and developments which take the songs to unexpected levels, turns and flips. Imagine a supergroup set-up with Detroit legends like Anthony "Shake" Shakir and now-a-days-cut-and-twist-houser Herbert -- and you get an impression of what this new offering from Stavöstrand and Skugge sounds like.
