Minimal Minimal Techno MP3

Kudos to an act named Antendex for out-minimalizing minimal techno on the opening track of the four-cut EP Diagram. That song, titled “Asteron,” is true to the album’s title — it’s little more than a rarefied beat pattern, just slow-paced, antiseptic, pin-prick percussion, plus tidy little melodic elements that sound like swells, but only by comparison (MP3). A truly refined little nugget of electronica. Get the full set at the website of the releasing netlabel, Complementary Distribution (bitlabrecords.com/cod).
