Last seen on Whities when it was only 7 releases deep, Quirke returns after a two-year hiatus from the imprint (very much in the middle of a purple patch) with a super strong 12" of introspective blue techno.
Lazy references aside, Whities 015's three tracks are all gear of a very high quality. Vatied City builds in momentum with ease yet feels like its constantly moments away from collapsing out of exhaustion, haunted by the atmospheres of a thousand hours spent trawling YouTube playlists for post-club electronica tunes long forgotten.
Ttransport Craving operates in many the same way, yet adds a chalky garage drum shuffle to the introverted feel of the audio. Hydraulic Deer lifts up the doldrum vibe with some rather odd sounding, almost waterlogged audio that we assume was Quirke's take on dub techno?
You need these tracks in your life.
