After a great return to form on a recent Klockworks EP, Dutch techno practitioner Steve Rachmad aka Sterac is back with a hot new track for Delsin. Originally released on a limited white label run earlier in summer, it now comes backed with remixes by Fachwerk's Mike Dehnert, VRIL and US twosome Anthony Parasole & Phil Moffa, as well as with some typically textural and boutique artwork by the excellent Boris Tellegen.

The original track is a stripped back bit of dub, deep, rolling techno with icy percussion and subtle synths working to take over your mind and body alike. German Dystopian cohort VRIL, who has also appeared on this label before, turns in a dub mix that is more urgent and is fleshed out with even more dub synths and stern kicks. It’s supple and minimal but will certainly turn plenty of heads in the right club space. New Yorkers Anthony Parasole and Phil Moffa from the The Corner label then remix the track into something with paranoid synth loops, pounding drums and urgent, rave infections the longer it roll on. Finally, the one and only Mike Dehnert repackages the track as a swimming, funky bit of heavyweight techno. His weird hooks, coarse percussion and intense hats make it the most arresting and urgent of the lot.

Overall, though, this is seriously streamlined, groove driven techno from a group of modern masters.
