Next up on Hotflush is the debut EP by Glaskin, aka brothers Jonathan and Ferdinand Bockelmann. Hailing from Munich, their origins can be traced to the same fertile scene that gave rise to Skee Mask, the Zenker Brothers and recent Hotflush acquisition, PYUR. They first appeared with a pivotal track on Scuba’s acclaimed Fabric 90 mix last year, and the Hotflush label boss revives his Abucs alias to chime in here with a powerful 135 bpm, broken-beat remix that recalls his Triangulation-era output.
The EP builds a fierce line of tension across 4 tracks, exploring new takes on percussive techno with a dub palette. ‘Groundwork’ heads straight to the main room whilst ‘Structure’ flaunts a dizzying groove.
Vast concrete spaces are navigated by sparse, hard-hitting drums on title track ‘Debris Disk’. For the remix, Scuba delves deeper into the dub aesthetic, restructuring the sounds to create his own narrative.
