Who? DJ/ producers Helena Hauff and F#X, collectively Black Sites
What? The A-side of their new 12″ single for Pan, “Prototype”
Why? Quite simply, because it’s one of the best techno tracks I’ve heard in years. Razor-sharp and crystal-clear at the outset, shifting in and out of distortion as it unfolds over ten mind-melting minutes, “Prototype” sits at the axis of Drexciya and Dettmann, showering acid synth lines over a shuddering electro-funk thump. If this is the kind of stuff residents Hauff and F#X are spinning in their sets, it’s no wonder Hamburg’s Golden Pudel is currently known as one of the best clubs in the world; listen below.
