Dense & Pica - Crispy Duck
I can't say the title's really doing it for me, but Hot Flush's latest 12" from the anonymous duo Dense & Pica is some quality prime-time techno that nods to Berghain and Tresor as much as to the Motor City, and occupies similar ground to some of Redshape's old school throwbacks. Their whole deal of hand-stamped, limited run vinyl is a nice touch - working the anonymous angle without getting into some over-worked game of Clue about it- as well as giving their records a nice sense of individuality. 31's unstable house riff is killing for me right now.
