Monika Kruse & Patrick Lindsey - Whds

200612"Techno

For the fiftieth release on her own Terminal M label, Monika Kruse teams up with Harthouse veteran Patrick Lindsey for two percussion sandstorms of techno that aren’t afraid to cull some plays from the minimal handbook. Just like the recent work by Thomas Schumacher, who for years was releasing brittle, no-holds-barred techno that showed little regard for life outside the club, Kruse and Lindsey are bending their sound to include more intricate, detailed rhythm studies and a clearer sense of evolving structure. Hence, both sides of this single pack the wallop of say, Luciano’s “Love Dose” remix amped up and dipped in cement, but still have enough shifting bubbles on the surface to retain both energy and interest for the entire running time.
