Divide et impera. Divide and rule. Carsten Jost, Sender techno strategist par excellence, is stage-managing his return to the local dance floors in Roman commander style. Perfectly poised between Sender typical, coolly minimalist techno beats and stretches replete with deeper melancholia, Divide et impera builds up into a veritable techno epic that doesnt ease off until you have utterly succumbed to its force. His labelmate k.lakizzs remix, with its dry and pushy powers of penetration is every bit as good as the original and varies the murky basic theme with hair-raisingly beautiful ribbons of sound to make a worthy second act. Alea jacta est.
