Phobia EP

Constant Variables
The second release on Constant Variables is an impressive one; the work of Berlin-based act Ecotone, it delivers warehouse techno, but with a twist. There’s the pounding drums and simmering, moody synths of ’Triskaidekaphobia’, while on ‘Fantasmagoria’, robust, grainy kicks and a swinging rhythm underscore dramatic synth sweeps. Most impressive though is ‘Arachnophobia’, where soaring strings and bleeps merge with funky breakbeats to create a wide-eyed workout with an early '90s UK techno vintage.
