Slam present Part 3 of their illustrious Transmissions with label debuts from Flug, AWB & Koichi. As with previous instalments, Transmissions aims to bring new faces in Techno to the forefront and the line up presented here demonstrates three artists who are really beginning to shine in their careers.
Argentinian born Flug opens the EP with the heavy hitting Insects. Whilst a hammering drum workout runs through the track, Flug manages to keep things deep as it opens up with a perfect, sweeping chord driving home the ferocious beat. Frenchman AWB takes things along the deeper end of the spectrum with The Fifth Element. His sub heavy, broken beats glide gently against an air of uplifting pads, spaced out vocal cuts and trip synths. Closing things off we have Belfast based Koichi who really dirties things up with an absolute monster of a track, Aether. Moody and hypnotic, Koichi pushes things into the future with crazy rhythms and a wicked percussive workout.
