One may argue that the first release courtesy of the duo was still exploring minimal tonalities, sculpting sparse layers and pursuing an all around restrained aesthetic. The second one, upping the tempo, flirted with electro and IDM, and was ultimately a more rewarding release, with the title track remaining a memorable foray into what proper techno music should have sounded like anno 2010.
Easy Prey, their third effort together, leaves little to nothing to the imagination. This record sounds exactly like you'd want a collaboration between Downwards and Blueprint head honchos to sound. A three track manifest of focused, tunnelling and pummelling techno. The end.
This joint effort has both of these producers at their most menacing. Sharp shooting DJ tool devastation. So far, I've heard all three played out at various parties during the past months or so, and they are all drop dead lethal. These are proper, mind bending loops shackled by deadly rhythmic outbursts.
If you grew fond of techno because you went nuts for a Regis or Ruskin plate way back when, then rest assured this ought to touch you in all the right places.
Naysayers might try and get at you with some Yeah, but this sounds like it was recorded some twenty years ago approach. No.
This sounds just like techno is supposed to sound at this day and age. It pounds, it bangs, it moves mountains and makes one move them with ease. Blueprint, here is to another twenty years!
