Mike Simonetti’s 2MR imprint welcome a genuine techno tour de force: Seattle’s Nark. As the man behind some of the city’s most progressive, inclusive and famously fizzy parties such as Dickslap, his selector and party host stripes precede him. His productions will do soon, too. Here’s your proof… A debut 4 track behemoth entitled ‘Empty Void’ 2 originals, 2 remixes, Nark reveals his full spectrum right here: from the alien swamp creatures of ‘Sunrise Climb’ via the poisonous 303 of ‘Acid Night Cap’ and the zoning tubular hypnotiser ‘Carl’s K Hole’, this is the sound of a man who doesn’t just understand dancefloors through years of playing to them… But knows how to push them to the edge and bring them back from the brink, too. Naturally the remixes are equally forthright and boundary-blurring. Octo Octa has us all gliding with her precision percussive twist to ‘Sunrise Climb’. Finally the label bossman Simonetti gets involved in the action with a cosmically minded take on ‘Carl’s K-Hole’, bringing Sagan’s sample to outer-planetary new levels. Welcome to the void… There’s no turning back now.
