A sixth release on Jurg Haller's excellent Forbidden Planet sees the focus swerve back to lesser known talents after that coup in a 12" by Mono Junk, with Berlin-based newcomer Annanan at the helm. There's a paucity of information on the artist from the label (intentional or otherwise) which ensures the focus remains squarely on the music, and those inquisitive soles not put off by a lack of yarn spinning will be rewarded with three sublime cuts. Lead track "124" booms and bristles in all the right places, with an intoxicating dub techno pulse at its core which resonates brightly with sonic intensity as the A side run out groove draws ever closer. On the B side, "ACIDz x2" fluctuates superbly between grizzled acid and saturated deepness, whilst the appropriately named "Satin" reins in the madness for a supple, widescreen journey into techno loaded with atmosphere.
