Fledgling London-based imprint brings us a two-tracker with a hint of old school flavas

Pins And Needles is a new techno and tech-house label based in London. They're only a dozen or so releases old, but they've already attracted the likes of Philipp Ort, Yokoo and Loquace to their label, and now you can add German house and techno veteran Micha Klang to that list.

Klang serves up two original tracks here. On the A-side, Fem itself starts with crisp, lively percussion and a meaty bassline, before breaking out some subdued but nevertheless effective acid, the overall effect being akin to a slightly groovier take on classic bleep techno. Over on the B, meanwhile, Jokka operates in similar territory but is darker and dirtier, and driven along by a nice squelchy acid b-line.

Two vey solid dancefloor cuts whose timeless sound should appeal to dancefloor veterans and fresh-faced newcomers alike.

Release date: 7 December (Beatport) / 21 December (general release)



Review Score: 8
