BLACK IN TIME aka DON CRISP / DJ RASOUL - Beat Box EP
Crisp US - CRO 0420
After a long delay due to the closing of their pressing plant and the mastering studio due to COVID -19, Crisp finally gets this one out. 'Beat Box' is perfectly stripped back techno that does a lot with a little. A wobbling synth line brings the character to the flat footed drums. Glitchy effects and water droplets are the only other real accompaniment but still you will dance. The Revolutionary mix is a little more elastic. Vocals bring some attitude and slapping hits drive it along. On the flip, the strobe lit 'Ich Liebe Dich' is a playful, rhythmic, broken up tune to get a late night crowd screaming for more.
