Jerusalem based Afik Naim isn’t likely to be a name you’ll recall, however his debut on Dolly isn’t one you’ll likely forget easily either. Opener ‘Evil Gabirol’ is a revved up, eccentric acid jam, dotted with cow bells and tough claps. ’45’ is a deeper affair. Built on militant harmonics and sounds people might more readily associate with instrumental grime and video games than techno. However ‘Falling Upright’ quickly gets back into the punchy techno lane. The slinking bass guitar gives it an air of madness, and adding cleverly shuffling percussion makes for a real late night heater. Kassem Mosse’s remix is quite simply fan-dabby-tastic.
