Interesting one from Barker here. For his solo debut on Ostgut Ton, the Leisure System co-founder has attempted to use the techniques and strategies of techno to create tracks that also eschew the genre’s main ingredient - drums. With not a kick, snare or clap to be heard across Debiasing, Barker relies on the rhythmic thrust of his synths to drive the EP. It makes for a dynamic listen - the likes of ‘Cascade Effect’ and ‘Filter Bubbles’ are hypnotic and propulsive due to their carefully accented grooves. The overall effect is reminiscent of a more considered rendering of Lorenzo Senni or early SOPHIE. A fine effort.
