KEY Vinyl don their scouting caps once again for another split EP featuring fledgling and debuting talents. First up is The Plant Worker. This French DJ and producer isn’t exactly new to the game, but as The Plant Worker he’s been slowly journeying down harder, rawer trajectories—as the name may suggest. With a trio of EPs out already, “Iota 001” and “Iota 002” continues his exploration into purer techno forms with two cuts of deep, probing, loopy floor material.
Then on the flip, KEY Vinyl unveil the first works from masked newcomer Transient X4. “Lost In Perceptions” is a jangling sic fi trip to techno’s bleak and pitch-black periphery, whilst “Ways To Space” sends its cosmic theme off for a spell in the basement, coming out as a monstrous peak-time send off.
