Since his last solo outing on Caberet in 2015, Germann Nguyen AKA Binh has impressed via fine releases on Time Passages, Perlon and My Own Jupiter. There’s naturally much to admire on the Eastern Bloc EP, not least the rubbery bass, skittish drum machine bounce and vintage Detroit techno chords of opener “Greenburger”. You’ll find plenty more fizz and elastic synth-bass on cymbal-heavy tech-house roller “Kinziger”, while closer “Revdone” sees the producer underpin starry chords with a thrusting, acid-flecked techno groove. Arguably best of all, though, is the title track, a fine chunk of revivalist Motor City techno futurism featuring a seriously mind-altering acid bassline and a cascading melody line.
