Basalt Crush steers the abstract techno themes which have emerged over the course of Ikin’s Warehouses (This Thing Records, 2014) and Modern Pressure (Type, 2016) into floor-fringing structures ripe for more experimental DJs and home listeners alike.

The A-side presents the elegant string flutters of Echoic and an amorphous, haunting stuyd in electro-acoustic dissonance with Autophasic, before titling floor-wards with the ghostly momentum of Gestalt, which could be some spectral relation of Pye Corner Audio. B-side delves deeper into that theme with more robust, stepping bass wickedly offset by a flinty rimshot, but still keeping the atmospheres wide and gauzy in Street Flare, and Grid draws us farther in to a mix of diaphanous bass and thistly hi-end, precisely balanced in the mix so you could practically lean in and it would support your weight.
