Israeli producer Yotam Avni started out only a few years ago, making waves on esteemed tech house imprints such as the local Be As One and Californian deep house institution Seasons. Fast forward to now, he's affiliated with such tastemaker labels as Innervisions and Hotflush - a perfect fit for his new darker, tech-influenced sound. Venturing further down the spiral, his latest offering is for Stroboscopic Artefacts - and it is actually his third release on the Berlin based experimental techno imprint. It follows up his impressive contribution to their esteemed Monad series. The A side features the sweaty Carnival vibes of "Avka" (New Life) featuring intense latin polyrhythms assisted by adrenalising rave horns. The rhythms seem to be a recurring theme here, as "Dybbuk" proves, but this time it's a hybrid of steely machine drums thrown in the mix. Finally "Modern Matters" is the most straight head offering: its austere mechanical swagger supported by hypnotic, ethnic prayer chants - and to quite stunning effect.
