Adding to previous 12'es on Ostgut Ton and his own RK label fellow Neuko¨llner and Berghain resident Kobosil offers four new uncompromising Techno club tools.
While all cuts on the 105 release share filthy, stone-cold, elemental rhythms - pounding, energetic and hypnotic 4/4 kick drum slaps - the devil is, like with all Kobosil productions, in the aesthetic details. '40000 L' uses gargling synth patterns and howling horns to dramatic effect; 'Bei Nacht H (178)' contrasts the kick with a harsh, tinny drumbeat and menacing melody pad, creating a nightmarish vibe.
'Backmask N' on B1 offers heavily alienated vocal samples alongside rave-reminiscing synth stabs and staggered hi-hat percussion. 'Derange' closes this four-tracker with grainy drone echoes and throbbing, sizzling synth pulses.
Adding to Kobosil's full-floor-focussed sonic repertoire 105 shows him from his darkest and most vigorous side yet - this 12' is a brute, in the most positive sense.
