Prolific Australian imprint Gynoid Audio lands its 72nd digital release via 88UW's No Rush ep, Sebastian Stohr's fourth for the label and second for Gynoid this year. It's easy to imagine Stohr producing "Incorrigible" with a flickered Aphex Twin styled grin - a look that says 'let's mess with their heads'. What else could be the reason for a sonically dismembered tambourine - the tracks focal point - continually descends downward into a confused tapestry of sinister bubbles and Sandwell District bleeps, beclouded further by fluttered panning, dank gurgles and tremolo techniques. "No Rush" is straight up techno - the type you pull out to explain what German techno is. Paul Boex, one half of Abstract Division and label head to Dynamic Reflection offers his "Hypno Rework" to "No Rush", shaving off some of the originals low end and replacing it with sprinklings of melodica-hypnotica. The back-beat kick-snare combo and subtle synths of "Virus" round out the EP and is a perfect pressure cooker for the esoteric warm up DJ.
