Album review: Koschka Blast EP


This classic techno four-to-the-floor kick drum hits in syncopation with hi-hats would sound boring as a definition is just quite plain that way, but, “Blast” features a replacement of the hi-hat with a percussion instrument much like the ring-ing quality coming from a clunking glass bottle. As such, this track is al but a classic techno track, “Blast” is an underground techno production with Koschka’s sense of percussive elements. The result is grooving beat from the start to finish.


Steady percussion loops from before get broken up with some disorienting soundscapes. Transitioning from the grooving beat’s of “Blast” to the synth layering deep house style soundscapes of “A4sync” is audibly the most the most convincing comparison of Koschka’s attention to musical composition of rhythm and, here, sound effects and background instrumentals. Effectively, he creates a harmonious pairing that evokes the listener’s feelings of the dark.


Things get very sinusoïdale in the sense of waveform modulation of the suggested sinusoidal wave as jarring pitch slides turn these puretones into some angry acid lines. Every acid techno track has its appeal and, Koschka, draws upon that in every way listeners expect “Sinusoïdale”.
