Track of the day: Black Sites : Prototype

Black Sites (Helena Hauff & F#X) 'Prototype' (PAN 46)

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.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
