Dynamic Reflection unveils its eleventh digital-only release to date in the form of Woo York’s “Bulava” EP, containing no less than three original tracks by the Ukraine-based production duo and a remix by label-residents Abstract Division.
First up is “Wogen”, a fine piece of subtle, evolving techno. Elegant, distinctive percussion carefully bedded upon a filtered, grainy fundament and driven forward by a simple, yet deadly efficient rhythm section. Perfect opener for the EP as well as for any warm-up set.
Abstract Division complete the A-side with their take on “Wogen”, letting as it were the original’s raw side surface through a portrayal of its rougher edges. By keeping intact characterizing rhythmic elements while altering their function within the track, Abstract Division provides an A-grade alternative to its already outstanding original cousin.
Flipping the EP over opens the doors for “Iskra”, which has already been creating quite a bit of buzz for itself and rightfully so. It harnesses a hard-to-find kind of drive that develops into a wonderful playful funk-soaked interplay of stabs and perc as the track progresses. It’s one of those cuts that proves great techno is still so very much about the right loop and a less-is-more attitude. Play at peaktime and watch the floor get down!
“Bulava” closes down with “Tanzen Im Mondlicht”, a beauty whose warm stabs and powerful bassline are likely to appeal to a broad audience of both techno-adepts and those perhaps looking for something a little bit housier. Class!
Woo York clearly know their game and are on top of it; this latest Dynamic Reflection release is an expose of their skill, diversity and authenticity as proof.
