Another fresh one on Super 6 Records is J.Garett's "Polite Society EP", serving the title track in four versions and obviously following the paths of DubTechno in its original form, a field that has seen a massive comeback lately but also has been watered-down by many average releases. But this piece goes far beyond that as the so-called "Version 1" is top notch quality in DubTechno whilst "Version 2" speeds up dubby flavors and combines them with uptempo, 'troity tension, distorted crash percussions and some Acid. Remixes are served by Nang - dubby as well - and Sascha Müller who provides a dark, haunting re-lick that still refers to its original vibe but as well aims to dancefloors of purist Techno clubs like Berghain or Ostgut. Recommended.
