2021 repress Barcode 4012957146201 Tracklist A1. Circles B1. NRG106 Info: Jet-setting Irish duo Bicep return to Will Saul’s Aus label with two steady analog techno grooves ready for deployment in either their own wildly celebrated sets or those of any DJ looking for modern dance tracks that are still faithful to the classics - this is techno that hasn’t forgotten where it came from, essentially. Using gritty, vintage-sounding rhythm sections as solid foundations, each track gradually builds up its own lush, melodic embellishments overtop - “Circles” stays true to its name with a cyclical main melody, shadowy bass and fuzzy house pads, whereas “NRG106″ sets spacey, dramatic chords and breathy vocals against the insistent, chittering machine percussion. As usual these two esteemed bloggers / DJs / artists / all around polymaths prove themselves to be paragons of taste, but here it’s clear that they are also steadily growing as producers, taking on different styles with aplomb and making it all look much easier than it really is.
