Hot on the heels of the recent reissue of the Point 2 LP, James Ruskin follows up for Tresor Records with a bold new EP entitled Siklikal.
Right from the outset, Nepte draws in by vast sonics and laser focus, unruly synths distort over a skipping beat that hits hard in the right places. As the beat takes a backstep but no less rhythmic, Kn Te3 is one for adventurous DJs, recalling the minimal loops that Ruskin is known for, seeped in industrial melancholy that fizzes a granular decay.
On the b-side, Nocke brings the beat back to the forefront with a muscular UK techno sound, highly e ective and pounding. Closing the EP is Kn Am3 which retains the industrial sinew of its near-namesake Kn Te3, exposing raw synth excursions over brutalist machinations. This EP symbolises Ruskin's dynamic approach, pushing at boundaries yet never without a strong grip over the dancefloor.
