Amsterdam pair TWR72 has been quietly ascending in the techno realm for a few years now, with a pair of releases for Turbo to its name (including an innovative DJ tool made up of 72 locked grooves) and, most recently, working with LA techno fiend Truncate to deliver a tune on Sound Pellegrino's recent collaborative compilation. Having worked together since their teens, the two producers are still formulating their exact plans for the rest of the year, but have nonetheless sent over a telling freebie. Built with a sturdy rhythmic framework and a simple oscillating pattern, "Mode" is a fine example of the stripped-back, tracky, but undeniably effective brand of techno that TWR72 plans to deliver more of in the months to come.
