Hizatron & Bashley "Human Torch"
- Words: Anthony Princi
Nottingham-based techno producers Hizatron and Bashley have just released their latest collaborative record, the three-track Discharge EP (artwork above, preview after the jump), via Wigflex. The pair make a minimalist brand of music with dark undertones and intricate percussion; although the sounds may seem familiar, it's the duo's execution that sets the tunes apart. Featured here, "Human Torch" is an eerie techno number that could soundtrack some kind of futuristic tribal ritual. Though not featured on the record, Hizatron & Bashley's track sets the stage for Discharge—boasting an array of fluttering percussion, hypnotically arpeggiated melodies, and deep sub-bass tones that keep "Human Torch" rolling and grooving throughout its eight-minute runtime.
