Label: Cabaret Records
Release: January 29
For his third outing on Japan's Cabaret Recordings, Berlin-based Binh delivers a floor-friendly three-track EP of stripped, atmospheric deep techno cuts. Known as a DJ with a refined ear, a thirst for digging and a laid-back approach to promotion, Binh extends his refined sound to his tight production output, and this EP is no exception.
Title track 'Mandarine' is our pick. A driving 909 rhythm provides the bed for the hypnotically evolving acid synth. The track dips and grooves – subtle yet driving – and is crisply produced for maximum club impact. The entire record has a retro, analogue feel, informed by the work of early pioneers such as Joey Beltram, or the Harthouse Records family.
