Miguel Matoz and Diatonik – Scattered EP
Here’s some hefty techno from Ballroom Records (the new label from Kaiser Souzai) as Miguel Matoz from Portugal collaborates with India’s Diatonik. But think Berlin rather than sunny beaches or strings
Mr Robot goes all out for machine techno but without ever descending into beats that overpower ideas. The sample “you’re afraid of change” may be a well worn route but this isn’t as dystopian as all that.
Scattered is no slouch either. But it shows more lightness of foot and that blend of Detroit and Berlin that’s rather appealing and managing a sonar-style hook line.
