Constantly on the move within the techno realm, Peja's music has found its way into the bags of leading techno tastemakers including Carl Cox. After a decade in the game he really can speak freely through his machines, and when you factor in a great remix from Trapez's Florian Meindl, it all adds up to a stellar package.
Kicking things off is the slick 'Supernal', a white knuckle roller with grainy hi hats cutting through smooth kicks and bass. Freaky vocal stabs and funky drum fills help add drama to the groove as it rolls on relentlessly. Then comes the frenzied 'Bawbee', which is the sort of paranoid, mania inducing cut that will grab the attention of any warehouse with its monstrous kicks and scurrying, burrowing synths.
The final original is the masterfully intense 'Carton', a dark and foreboding wall of sound that is detailed with little flashes of static electricity, incendiary hi hats and a euphoria inducing back light of glowing white pads.
Stepping up to remix, is renowned German Florian Meindl, and he decides to strip things back to a deeply subterranean place where big kicks and hooky stabs are backed by a subtle sea of pads that rise up and up through the mix. It is a heady, hypnotic affair that really sucks you in.
One for those who like their techno pure and proper, Peja has really come up with the goods once again here.
