It's been nearly a year since Diction's last original excursions on Death Proof Recordings, the Silk Owl EP seen their typically thunderous techno come to the fore. And like last year's efforts, this certainly don't let up! A pair of epic tracks that display a remarkable combination of restraint and ambition while cementing a uniquely dark vision for stripped-down techno.

Cobalt's rumbling bass bin convinces you immediately you're about to step into a bold new direction. Diction's clattering hiss and jittery low-end have become easily recognizable and this latest number is yet another brick in the wall.

As for 'Floating', the streamlined beat gallops at a good clip, the synthesizer is urgent yet wistful and unsettling, and the hi-hats are shaken into a proper melee. Diction's signature elements are here in their entirety, an enigmatic minimal groove, with a throbbing emotional pay-off.

On remix duties we have old friend and label-mate Ettica lining up an ethereal slice of tech house on Cobalt! Groove and shuffle aplenty, it builds and cascades though strong bass and drumlines with a huge vocal twist that dictates and instructs through smooth waves of progressive-like blue.
