lowtec - Secret Corner Jens Kuhn has distinguished himself of late with a series of critical, glorious twelves for Playhouse, and a track on the fine double Out To Lunch compilation. So it is for one of his fellow contributors to that compilation, Dave Moufang, that Lowtec turn to deliver this double album. For an idea of Jens special ability head straight to Lower Hutt, savour the keys and just wait for the dusty break to drop.
Lowtec - Wonderkidd The unlikely Workshop-NonPlus+ alliance continues with the debut of Lowtec on Instra:mental's label, following Kassem Mosse's excellent contribution last year. Moving farther and farther away from its already tenuous drum & bass roots, Instra:mental's label keeps finding new iterations of its technological fetish in unexpected places. These two tracks from Lowtec are thin and haggard, lacking a significant sub presence but making up for it with a dizzy momentum. A bit more active on its feet-with an actual kick/hat pattern!-"Looser" owes a little to Lowtec's partner-in-crime Mosse, carving a tenaciously linear path through uncomfortably sustained chords and militant horn samples.

a) Lowtec ‘Wonderkidd’ ‘Wonderkidd’ greets us with a vocal sample that morphs keys with a low-fi piano chord before the discordant groove of the main riff comes into effect. Analogue synths dance around the deep chord groove with early detroitisms flexing between a repeating bleeped out pattern. Hypnotic key stabs sink you deeper into the tune that shows us why Lowtec is one of Berlin’s top underground button pushers. aa) Lowtec ‘Looser’ The warm hiss of anaolgue beats starts off the excellent AA tune ‘Looser’. Dabs of . radio vocals progress the tune amongst a myriad of discreet electronic.
