Germany’s Patrik Carrera makes a welcome return to Mark Broom’s Beard Man following his debut ‘Hovi EP’ for the label in 2016.
‘Inverse EP’ sees the Paranoid Dancer label head deliver 4 new tracks that build on his reputation for uninhibited techno with ‘Blue Sheep’ taking the lead with a strong bassline and cutting delivery. ‘Manipulate’ takes a plunge into darker depths; quaking and experimental while ‘Wirken’ continues this powerful and driven EP with striking aplomb. The title track comes last here, displaying a tough funk to its no-nonsense dancefloor appeal.
Also included on the EP is an appearance from Makaton who delivers his Cannibal Jaw Remix of ‘Manipulate’ and as we’ve come to expect from the uncompromising Rodz-Konez man it’s a belter. The remix has already had its first airing on BBC Radio 1 in B.Traits’ show when Beard Man was her Label Mates recently:
1. BLUE SLEEP
3. MANIPULATE (MAKATON CANNIBAL JAW REMIX)
