Ian Pooley’s his new techno label Montage follows up the inaugural release from his Silvershower alias by handing a label debut to Hans Berg, the Swedish producer with previous releases for Kant and known for collaborations with Johanna Knutsson.

For his first Montage outing Berg delivers two original tracks showing both sides of his production talent. A-side ‘Field’ employs an elastic bassline and teases out delicate melodies, the combination of which recalls Four Tet and Joy Orbison at their most anthemic, while ‘Polar’ sees the Swede head in a more stargazing direction, with glittering synths cloaking a hefty rhythmic backbone. Pooley’s Silvershower alias rounds out the 12” with a darker take on the A cut, pinning the original’s bassline to its heavy kick, ride and claps for a powerful techno roller.
