Warsaw producer Fau, well-known in some music circles for his DJ collective Mustnotsleep and producer duet Fau&Deam, was until now mainly associated with future-bass DJ sets and productions. His first solo EP is therefore quite surprising – the material included is 100% Techno, bringing to mind the type of aesthetics you’d associate with the likes of Sandwell District, Frozen Border or Horizontal Ground.
The EP opens with the strict, severe and dark ‘Keta’. Its climate (basement filled up with smoke, 5 am…) may be comparable either to the classic System 01 ‘Drugs Work’ or Dario Zenker’s productions on previously mentioned Frozen Border.
The next track ‘Disorder’ basically sounds just as if it were created by Function or Sleeparchive – however, what is really significant is that nothing further can be said concerning the copying of someone else’s ideas. What will strike your attention is how graceful and tactful the reference to their works is.
The last one, almost 10 minutes in length is ‘Flying Mannequin’ undoubtedly possessing the biggest club potential, which will perfectly match the so-called peak-time.
What is more, all 3 tracks are based on a very high level of vocal sample usage. The best example of this effect is shown in “Disorder”, where the shredded voice of Hvrst stays in the head for a long time after listening to this tune.
