Tehnika, 2002

As much as I enjoyed the previous two Tehnika releases, Random Logic’s Numrebs and Tehnika 1, I’m rather disappointed with this one. It follows a long tradition of four-on-the-floor minimalism, but there’s something soulless about this interpretation. These are sounds I’ve heard before. The electronics sound too familiar, and the repetition sounds repetitive, rather than hypnotic. I hate to be so down on a release with good intentions, but I’d recommend checking out Basic Channel label for better variations on this theme. These tracks lack the texture to make their simplicity interesting.
