about

Foremost techno label !Organism continues in its fine run of recent form with a new EP from M. Fukuda, the Japanese producer who has released some fine missives on labels like Slap Jaxx and Phobiq. Here he serves up three more finely chiselled cuts that come complete with a remix from Soma associated pair Space DJz.

First up is the title track ‘Diamond Is Unbreakable’ a heads down and cantering brew of sandpaper textures and technoid squelches that is all about building to a heady peak. Subtle vocal sounds litter the landscape as the percussion scrapes on and huge blasts of white noise help to keep the tension throughout.

The remix comes from Space DJz who have more than ten years experience in the game and a fine discography to boot. They re-version the track into something a little more rugged and roughly textured, Propelled by vast kick drums, splashes of claps bring a certain depth as tough iron like synths flesh out the groove.

Next up, ‘Man of the Pillars’ is a torque-y techno cut that encourages heads down marching with its streamlined hi hats and frictionless groove rolling beneath a repeating male vocal who adds and air of urgency to the already masterfully intense arrangement that percolates below.

Final offering ‘Golden Wind’ is a little more funky and playful but remains just as functional in dancefloor terms all the other three cuts. Here plenty of energy comes from the claps, which are stacked on top of each other, and rounded, rubbery hook that rides up and down the track from start to finish to imbue it with plenty of dynamism and fluid groove.

Organism is a label that focuses on no-nonsense modern techno and few embody that MO better than Japan’s M. Fukuda, as this excellent EP proves once again.
