Reset Robot - Direction EP [Whistleblower]


Reset Robot - Direction EP [Whistleblower]

Making a welcomed return to the Whistleblower imprint, Reset Robot drops a techno focused Directions EP which features three original tracks alongside a remix from Heiko Laux who has been influential of late with releases on Klockworks, Soma, Tronic, Figure and his own label Kanzleramt.

Direction opens the release with a pounding kick drum and wispy synth line layered over the robotic female vocal that is the track's main hook. Dubby stabs add to the atmosphere and building tension of this dance-floor focused cut of peak time techno.

Heiko Laux’s rework of Direction is a deeper take on the original with a spacious mix and slow building structure. Distorting the vocal into an ambient texture with an ominous presence, the dark and stripped back remix is understated with captivating suspense.

Track three Polara is a morphing soundscape of dystopian textures layered over a rolling groove. Mechanical with precision engineering in the sequencing of the sounds each part is a piece of an intricate puzzle.

Finishing off the release is Beams which has the hypnotics of a rippling synth blended with bursts of melody and eerie atmospherics. Trippy and precise, the momentum is unrelenting and full of drama.
