Peter Van Hoesen - Increments

Lan Muzic, Exercise One’s label, is pretty trustworthy, and it’s not let down by this release. The elastic techno sound of the label owners is given a slightly more frenetic twist by Van Hoesen. “Increments” and “Static C” almost sound like techno in the old sense, given how much faster in BPMs they are than the usual minimal fare. Exercise One do a remix of “Increments” which has that boompty-house bassline you heard on Gabriel Ananda’s “Doppelwhipper,” and ends up being the best track on this 12”.
