Plankton / Edding
Vinyl / Digital
Hidden Recordings / Released March 2012
What does it sound like?
Solid, driving techno for heads that appreciate the Drumcodes of this world, complete with an engaging, not to mention decidedly proggy cut from Mark Broom. In total three original tracks are offered from Plankton, and each proves the Marseilles based producer clearly knows a thing or two about quality tough grooves.
The opening title number sets the benchmark high enough, filled with mini-crescendos that whip the arrangement up into a relentless number dominated by rushing air and quick synth stabs. Sloping, Kaloff and Turnal similarly follow suit, growing from tense origins to peak time stormers boasting all manner of strange noises, timely hi hat patterns and heavy kick drums.
What highlights can I expect to hear?
It doesn’t take long to realise plenty of people will be sinking their teeth into Plankton’s trio, but with a remixer like Mark Broom on board it’s difficult for him not to shine brightest. Here his reworking of Edding proves exactly why that’s the case; tune indeed.
