Following on from his lauded remixes of Scuba’s ‘The Hope’, Plangent Records boss Recondite returns to Hotflush with his first set of original productions for the increasingly prolific label. Entitled ‘DRGN / Wist 365’, the mysterious Berlin-based enigma stays true to his dark roots and delivers two equally sparse grids of low-end minimalism. A-side ‘DRGN’ represents a menacing cut of subterranean acid, while over on flip, the 9-minute long ‘Wist 365’ essentially constitutes a gradually evolving drum workout. Iris Sween
