MMI is resident of Affair Berlin and the man behind Techno Scene Picks of the Month, a series of YouTube Videos that showcases the best releases to hit the scene.
His debut EP on Shapes of void, Compulsory Response presents 3 original tracks and 2 remixes.
The opening track, Gitana hints at MMI’s wider spectrum of sonic influences ranging from voice samples to guitars to drones and tribal drum rolls. Avoid & Mikadroid’s cut adds a touch of Goa trance to this Gitana while Relapso takes the track to a darker dance floor with full kicks and a racing atmosphere.
Doxa is more classic in its structure and use of instruments, a fat acid bass line that sometimes steals the protagonism of the spectral synths while percussion does its job well, pulling the drive. Vorticist explores a thin arpeggiator, undulating it with skill.
Showcasing his commitment to techno as an art, Compulsory Response EP is a respectable work that focuses on creativity and experimentation; it definitely plants the seed of curiosity to what MMI will bring next.
