Bodies in Pawn is a compilation constructed from a foundational sample set created by Detroit producerLen Bartush aka Mutate. Featuring original versions crafted by Mutate himself, as well as by Project 313, Audio Injection, Luis Flores, and Joel Morgan. Bodies in Pawn represents another critically functional techno release sure to find its way into the record crates of DJs from LA to Berlin.The Luis Flores version exemplifies a masterful techno workout driven by thick layers of shakers and hihats, paired with energetic glitched percussive hits. By contrast, Mutate's dub version combines stark minimalism with his signature dub echoes, gradually blossoming over a punchy kick drum as the track evolves.Audio Injection contributes a delirious big room techno composition, made memorable by the subtle and unexpected inclusion of metallic scraping chimes. Finally, Project 313 completes the set with a stomping strippeddown beat surrounded by drifting noise, perfectly matching the hardandsteady style of their live sets in Detroit.The release also includes two digitalonly versions by Mutate and Joel Morgan. Mutate's digitalonly rendering adheres to his typical strippeddown style; the track is intensely focused around a brokenbeat kick drum that leaves behind a trail of drifting, glitchy noise as it pushes forward. By contrast, Joel Morgan's heavily atmospheric version employs chilling drones and eerie vocal samples to a truly horrifying end.
