Genre : Techno
American techno hero Jak returns on Subsensory Records who
have been supported by the likes of the legend Carl Cox. A 3
track E.P with 2 mixes of title track ‘Crashback’ and 1 mix
The tracks are simple chugging rhythms which would sound
like a steam train smashing through the walls of a club,
through the dance floor and back through the walls on the way
out! Not that you would care or notice. It just sounds good.
Personally if I had to plump for one I would go for the the
Rewired mix of Crashback.
The original of Crashback does exactly what it says on the
tin. Percussion, hats, fat bottom, some stabs and a vocal
sample that says ‘Garage’ a la Underworld ‘Darker Longer’.
Unfortunately no where near Underworld.
The Jak Rewired mix of Crashback has a bit more going on
than the rest. Theres no messing from the first kick, the
bottom end base is straight into the track, so fingers straight
on the EQ! It does sounds a tiny bit more musical, due to
a couple of changes, which will of course get the old finger pointers
out! You also have a bit more percussion on top which gives
this mix the edge from the package.
Backslash is pretty much in the same vain although this
track builds slightly better than the previous 2. Jak also
adds a couple of spooky, dark pads into the frame which
gives the track a little bit more atmosphere during the
intro and main break.
All said and done this is peak time, so well worth checking
