Reissue of the 1992 techno classic 12". "In 1992 two Canadians captured a stirring moment in techno, uniquely harnessing the inner power of their machines into the haunting edge of 'The Wipe'. Easily recognized by its flanging hi-hats and the warm analog sub harmonics of the TB-303, 'The Wipe' is unmistakably a track with the means of escape on a dancefloor. The production duo of Himadri and Huren (aka Teste) have been pushing avant-garde electronic music forward since 1991 working as Teste, Turph, Perceptrons and their own names individually for labels such as Switch and Zhark. 'The Wipe' was originally released in 1992 on Probe Records (a Plus 8 off-shoot label created by Richie Hawtin & John Acquaviva) and has been out of print since the late 1990's. From the start 'The Wipe' was an instant classic within Detroit's fertile underground scene of the early 1990's, having a massive impact at Plus 8's legendary events. Its dark moody tone and relentless bassline quickly became an underground anthem in techno corners around the globe. From the first time he played it out in a set Richie Hawtin recalls it as, 'still the only track to this day that sounds like it's physically ripping through a sound system'."
