Labour Division

Perc Trax
Al Matthews and Patrick Walker are known for punishing techno, but this sampler from their album casts them in a different light. The title track bristles with their trademark panel-beating drums, while the slower tempo makes for a different kind of intensity. 'Mandate' is a grungy broken beat affair, while 'A Greyed Out Life' is a beautifully spooky ambient arrangement. Perc deserves kudos for persuading Factory Floor to remix 'Nihil Novi', delivering tight, tense drums and mellow synths.
