DJ Hyperactive's 11thV project has been festering for nearly a year and finally now comes to surface. The original mix serves up a warping lead that carries the track and captures the essence of real minimal techno needing very little but just the right elements added taking us full circle to the very sounds that got us here to begin with. Next mix is a minimal workout by established Droid Recording artists, Audio Injection. Audio Injection's mix starts jabbing with a staccato synth line that quickly shape shifts into a flurry of efx and arrangement wizardry while tastefully offering glimpses of the original synth line that keeps you hooked and begging for more. Developer mix leans in the less conservative direction of composition. The big efx and layering of mental vocal loops, reminiscent of Distancia on 4TRK-014, take you over as the kick and haunting pads lead the way. Midway through Developer allows you to hear the spooky vocal solo just long enough to catch your breath and back to business. Minimal and Techno purists gather around to hear what 11thV has to say.
