An interesting collaboration between Heinrich Tillack, who at the time recorded as Pysex for Plus8 Record, and Oliver Bondzio, better known as one half of Hardfloor. Opening with a crawling minimal acid tech builder, Night Shift will lure you in with its simple, repetitive and advancing acid lead, which never actually goes anywhere, but maintains that mysteriously captivating "it’s irrelevant where I’m from, of even lesser importance is where I’m heading, all that matters is that I’m here now!" attitude.
Detective is an old school mid tempo techno tune with a piano loop that could guarantee it some play time even in housier sets. It tends to be more accessible yet not as intriguing and illimitable as the previous one. Not much variation and twist to it, which is generally OK, but it doesn’t as well here as it did on Night Shift.
Police Car might be my pick of the three. A completely wicked, grating sequence is placed above the minimal percussion, and it doesn’t stop at all – four minutes! Now, you might not find anything new about that, but wait until you don’t hear that sound! If I didn’t know better, I’d say it was jacked from an old Tetris game, or a Pac Man expansion set. By the time the percussion gets more emphasized some ninety seconds deep, this is musical mental hospital. An anthem for old school video game junkies, which gets totally tweaked out around the three minute mark. A real nutter of a track, I tell you! Basically no structural surprises, just an insane piece which will drive you mad.
