French techno purveyor Paul Ritch returns to the fold with Space Owl, a no-nonsense three track set that takes the listener deep into the mechanics of techno. His return to Quartz sees the label boss bring a widescreen, all-consuming tapestry, dented and permeated by solid beats, chunky grooves and rigid rhythms.

Title track Space Owl brings bleeping sonar while a backbone kick drum warms up the plates and FX, hi hats and ticking snares make for a metronomic slice of motorised soul.

Pacemaker brings a stringy and rubbery topline to the track, injecting more groove into the mix, while warm sub bass and pressurised percussion add deep swing to this tech roller. Meanwhile, Futur 3000, strips back to an ambient intro, that relies on eerie atmospherics and slowly EQ'd beats, before morphing into an experimental mesh of high end frequencies and low end tones.
