Sutekh - Two Rhapsodies

One of the best producers over the past few years in American experimental techno has been Sutekh. Unfortunately, the dearth of consistent releases under his name makes it a hard case to actually prove, but his most recent 12”, “Two Rhapsodies” makes it plainly and convincingly. The A-side, “Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini, Variation 17,” is a glistening melodic beast of a tune, which might fall in line with Luciano’s recent productions if it wasn’t so hard-edged beat-wise. The B-side is similar, but has a cut-up beat that places him closer to Akufen. Luckily, the sumptuousness of the melody melds easily with the metallic click and clank that undergirds it.
