Hidden continues its thorough exploration into the deep and hypnotic realm of techno with an avant-garde and dance-ﬂoor ready release by mainstay JC Laurent, titled Through Diﬀerences. Included is an instantly recognizable remix by spatial sound virtuoso, Mike Parker.
Side A begins with Through Diﬀerences and its rich, organic textures levitating around clever drum work, building tension then releasing with timely percussion. Featuring Mike Parker’s meticulously honed vision of techno, he’s carves out a brutal remix matching his vintage ritualistic sound locked into its own space and frequency.
Side B begins with Backwards’ raw drums aggressively paving the way for an edgy, stripped-down and intense vibe. Navigates Time and Space locks you in immediately with a groovy baseline and rolling snares for a special acer-hours feeling.
Silence as Weapon has a distinct oﬀ-kilter sensibility with rollicking drums and jabbing percussion.
