Terrence Dixon is one of the most original voices in techno, having forged a path which combines the offbeat, discordant and minimal into his own inimitable formula. ‘Resonator’ sounds, like an acoustic jam in a junkyard courtesy of a jug band beamed into the future from a parallel 1920s rust belt. ‘Space Vision’ couldn’t be more different; a jagged insistent sinister drone, the only thing to relate it to ‘Resonator’ being the monotonous kick underpinning it. Label boss M.R.E.U.X comes up with a something similar to ‘Space Visitor’ with ‘Black Hole’ but it’s much funkier. ‘Shabo’ also delivers, having a more than generous portion of insect menace, something which this tone of techno can’t do without.
