Talker – Battle Standards 12″ – Standards & Practices

stanprac001Having seen a couple releases on Regis and Female’s label Downwards, Talker (Karl Meier and Johnathan Krohn) bring three blistering, boisterous techno tunes to the table. This release marks the first for new label Standards and Practices.

The tracks are dense, quite dark, seemingly heavily layered, with overdriven elements, and aimed for sweaty dancefloors or warehouse parties. (Gold) Standard is my pick of the three. Abrasive beats are accompanied by an atmosphere of moody pads. Elements and/or textures from this track remind me of early Mind Over MIDI.

Those looking for some heavy techno ought to give this a listen.
