Peverelist Pulse 'Modulation EP' 12''
Pev swijly follows up the Pulse EP with another four tracks of sprightly club gear that conknue to shape out his current areas of explorakon in the studio. As ever, there are no fixed concepts or approaches - just an insknct for energising, invenkve tracks taking in a range of tempos and rhythms.
The first half of Pulse Modulakon EP is marked out by linear rhythms which showcase the most techno aspects of Pev’s sound. ‘Pulse V’ is charged with the kind of alien synth lines which could only come from his studio, but also draw a line to the hi-tech soul of foundakonal Detroit techno. ‘Pulse VI’ has a starker, bleep-led sound pitched towards tougher dancefloors.
’Pulse VII’ strips things back in comparison, leaning in on a blanket of bass and keeping the drums sparse and to the point - a study in soundsystem pressure. Widening the spectrum of the record, ‘Pulse VIII’ sees Pev make a rare push up into 160+ territory - something normally reserved for his DJ sets. Swerving obvious break edits, his take on jungle is lean and crisp, delivering a fresh slant on the sound while maintaining the sharp focus of his current output.
