Nutown Project and Katou - Petite Chose

Einmaleins continues to rule the world of bonkers door-slamming minimal house, and here we have two more stuttering jacking bangers which should be like fine grist to the mill for fans of this on-point label. “Poisson Davril” is the slightly more straightforward of the two, but nonetheless sounds like it’s being EQ’d live all the way through, and with a touch of electro in the bassline it doesn’t follow a predictable trajectory of any sort. “Petite Chose” works around a huge splashing snare drum, with the newly obligatory “tourettes-twitch” vocal snippet carving its way around it. It’s a little deeper than “Poisson” with its gloopy breakdown, but as is the norm with Einmaleins, even the deeper tunes are so utterly insane they’d still qualify for peaktime.
