Review: The Newcastle born, London based label Jaunt serves ups a second part of its remixes series to mark ten years in action. After Inland, Jonas Kopp, Jasper Wolff & Maarten Mittendorff and Gian appeared on the first instalment, now come Tripeo, Aubrey, BNJMN and Markus Suckut with a versatile pack of techno quality.
Techno mainstay Suckut goes first with a big, bouncy version of AWOL's 54 973379, -1 614705 that is laced with uplifting piano chords. Inventive melodic master BNJMN then slips into dance floor mode with his tunnelling and deep remix of Artefakt's Wanderings. It is a hypnotic track that never lets up and then Aubrey reworks Luke Hess's TDY into a mind melting affair with looping, glowing styling lines spraying about over high pressure and urgent drums. Last of all, Tripeo reimagines Deep'a & Biri - Pilgrim into a punchy, hard hitting track with raw percussion and supersized drums that will rock even the biggest warehouse. This is high functioning techno in a range of equally compelling styles and marks another vital EP from Jaunt.
Review: The Jaunt Records 10 years series shores up with the Land installment featuring another four adventurous souls that have the spirit of deepest techno in their bones. Stojche lets lush Motor City synths lead the way on the energetic "The Exchange" before AWOL gets into an intricate broken beat groove on the stunning "54.973379, -1.614705". Luke Hess brings some unabashed acid gurgles to the front of the mix on "TDY" and then Deep'a & Biri plot a course for dubby waters with the growling tones of "Pilgrim".
