Anklam comes straight out the block with a fast paced drum structure reminiscent of early Shed productions. The whole track is given a real Detroit feel with a perfectly designed synth stab that filters in an out perfectly as stylized 909 percussion gives this the drive of a top end modern techno production.
Block keeps the pace of the EP going as once again, Fenckler delivers a deep driving Techno track, designed for the floor. Energetic, synths with subtle delays are allowed to work this track while simple and effective percussion drop in and out making this a real groover with a late 90s feel to it.
Fenckler ends the EP of a suitably deep note with Fabric. His rhythms are tight and another perfectly balanced synth hook keeps this track firmly rooted at the deeper end of Techno. Most certainly thought out with the dance floor in mind once again this could easily work its way into peak time or end of the night takedowns.
Fenckler shows that simplicity is the key with Techno and does so with great ease. A fantastic knowledge of rhythm and shows he is definitely one to watch in the future.
