White Material strikes again! Easily one of the most buzzing underground labels of the moment, the Brooklyn/Berlin imprint has caught label of the month honors from RA, Boiler Room spots, and a completely sold out and in-demand back catalog. Impressive work to say the least, but listening to the tracks you can hear it's not just empty hype. This 5th installment from WM comes from DJ Richard who delivers all manner of hybrid techno bangers to work the floor from the propulsive "Benzos" to dirty, lo-fi jack of "Freydis" (that actually samples the No Wave group DNA), and the b-more infused bounce of "Richardplatz NJ Storm Drain Mix." Bangers though and through! Limited hand-stamped pressing. Buy now or pay the "slept-on it" price later.
