Augustus Williams - IncreaserLABEL: Metroplex
With Augustus Williams, Juan Atkins' newly signed artist, Metroplex Records welcomes one of Detroit's new generation of electro and techno explorers to the label. His debut, titled ,,Increaser EP" offers four tracks of celestial funk, deeply indebted to the classic sound of Metroplex. The EP starts off with ,,The Hook-Up", a bouncy yet minimal electro permutation built around a propulsive bassline and a percolating synth arpeggio. On the other three tracks Williams flexes his techno muscle and shows his keen sense for deep and focused techno-soul with a futurist edge that has any dance floor heaving with energy. - most notably in the noisy abstractions of ,,Submission".
