The Acid Test series from LA operation Absurd Recordings return to Achterbahn D'armour's fine 2014 LP Odd Movements with an equally compelling remix 12". Compelling because the four artists invited to contribute here each bring their own distinct voice to the table, and the results are likely to intrigue fans of modern techno of all its various shades. First up is Marcellus Pittman who transmogrifies "Holy Roman Empire" into a wonderfully effervescent slice of percussive techno laced with that Detroit grit, whilst Italian producer Chevel continues his recent strain of abstracted productions with growling take on "Odd Movements". Gerard Hanson seems perfectly suited to remix "Passagen" as Convextion, bringing a low gravity electro hum to proceedings, but our pick is most definitely the superlative rework of "Konigstr" from Sued co-founder SW.
