Dorian Blue - The Advent (Thema)

Title: Dorian Blue
Artist: The Advent
Label: Thema Recordings
Cat Number: THEMA049
Genre: Techno

1: Kombination 100
2: Dorian Blue
3: In Time (The Brooklyn Edit)
4: Rhythm (Is life Edit)
5: Scroll (Digital Only)

If you want a richly textured techno EP, this is for you. Even though it’s hardly original, there’s so much going on here that it’s freshness shines through. The title track is my personal fave here, and comes across as cold wave on steroids. ‘Rhythm (Is Life Edit)’ is a break beat monster of stellar proportions, ‘Kombination 100’ a rubberoid techno banger, ‘In Time (The Brooklyn Edit)’ an airy, tribal romp, while ‘Scroll’ a relentless loop of doom. It’s all here on this exemplary release which is impossible not to like, if you like techno, that is.
