New techno from Finland: After the debut earlier this year, Helsinki-based Etherwerks owner Hannu Ikola comes with the second EP of three differently shaded tracks. Grim opener “Black Ingrained Dust” is exposed to the smog covering the industrialized wasteland and would easily join the camp of Repitch and Perc Trax. The B-side’s floor-animating “Escape Pod” is the undisputed winner with Pan Sonic-esque inflated loops and a whiff of dub while at the end dubby chords in smoothly rolling “Pylon” hail the last days of summer.
