DC93 - Ben Sims - Air Rage EP - Drumcode

As Ben Sims’ own biography puts it, “if you know techno, you know Ben Sims”. The simple truth behind this statement says it all about a DJ and producer whose standing, as one of the scenes leading exponents, appears to be as evergreen and unshakable as it ever has been in his long an illustrious career. It was then with great pride and much excitement that Drumcode released Ben’s ‘Smoke & Mirrors’ album in 2011; very much a discography highlight for Drumcode and one of the most significant releases of the year for many others within the techno scene. An album in the true sense of the word, ‘Smoke & Mirrors’ drew critical acclaim from all corners, not least for the retro-future vision with which Sims’ lays out his blueprint for what techno can and should be; proving to those that needed reassurance that Ben Sims is the jack-master of the techno trade.

With the irresistible force of his recent contributions to the label still reverberating strongly throughout all parts of techno and beyond, Drumcode welcome back Ben Sims for another inspirational and incendiary EP of his trademark grooves. Beginning where Ben’s ‘Smoke & Mirrors’ album left off, Air Rage EP has Sims on serious underground form; laying down punishing party grooves of abrasive, rolling rhythms while making space for splashes of full-force funk and enchanting melodic moments. Sims’ intuitively daring use of these contrasting energies is the source of this EPs intoxicating appeal with examples evident within all four tracks. Whether it is the looping robotic bleeps on The Parade; the funked-up electro stomp of Air Rage; the otherworldly strings in Move In Time or the harmonic bell chimes within Machine Funk.
