Forthcoming via Audiomatique Recordings is Maetrik's new "Underrate Dis E.P." which is about to be released as the labels cat.no. 039 and features three brand new tracks of which "Relax" is to be found on the A-side. Personally I'd rate this one as weakest track out of these, coze some repetitive, metallic, always offbeat-sounding elements are fully destroying the thrilling magic of a nice and rolling oldskool'ish ClubTechno bassline and hypnotic vocal bits. "Purr Baby" as B1 does better and serves a hypnotic mixture of House grooves - yeah, even some hand claps! - and deep, haunting Minimal Techno - a combination that perfectly works throughout the last third of a long night when people are looking for an ultimate sonic trip. B2 "Herb House" is on similar tip, but focuses on classic, pumping House beats accompanied by a nice, delayed and ever repeating vocal sample plus some funny, mosquito'esque sound scampering through the stereo field. Irritating at first but a genious move indeed.
