    Delsin’s sister label Ann Aimee (pronounce it however you like) has unearthed another techno talent here in the form of Yan Cook. The Ukrainian has collaborated with a number of people in the past, as well as working under aliases like Eigenes Rezept, but is now focusing on his own style fully: heavy dancefloor techno with haunting atmospheres.

    Listen to his (vinyl only) 2x2 EP and you’ll get the picture immediately: ‘Rhomb’ is as heavy and subterranean as they come. Apocalyptic sounding searchlight synths pan over the whole arrangement as microbial sounds busy them selves in the foreground. Vast, echoing claps seem to hang in the air and you can imagine someone like Dettmann dropping this in Berghain to a rapturous reception.

    ‘2x2’ bangs the box even harder – the kicks hammer the same spot over and over rather than rolling onwards, where the gradual forward motion instead comes from the rattling, melting synth chords that flood the arrangement each bar. This one’s aggressive and raw, splintered and forceful: Yan Cook’s grip on the dancefloor, then, is a firm one to say the least.
