Sawf – Menete Inc. Yuji Kondo Remix (Perc Trax TPT059 – 2013)
Attention, “Menete” goes off the beaten track of current techno productions by reaching back to EBM textures with a pinch of dark aggression. Sawf is flying across the cyberspace with a stoned vocal sample and fictious guitars, good for rocking with Ministry to issue a headbanger alert.
Then “Toolio” is a perfect match to Perc Trax’s trademark heavyweight fare while the B-side hits with Yuji Kondo’s shredded apocalyptic pounder, of the same high quality like his recent remix for DJ Skirt’s twelve on Semantica. Closing the show is a rhythmic medium-paced builder “Diin”. Occasionally I have had difficulties to get into Sawf’s releases but this EP is a blast.
