Since the year 2000, Belfastian DJ and producer Phil Kieran is providing us with a constant flow of outstanding records and remixes – among them for Novamute and Soma – with his energetic sound from the capital of Northern Ireland. Not least has he gotten awareness with his Alloy Mental project on Fatboy Slim's label Skint. His new maxi for Cocoon designs two blueprints of uncompromising Techno between tradition and modernity. Whereas the post-acid sounding A side can be indeed called "Wasps under a Toy Boat", displaying ongoing 'wasp sounds' which are shifted against each other, the break- and bass-orientated B side "Tartan Paint" sets new standards regarding the sound abstraction beyond popular expectational attitudes. And thus stays a highly functional DJ weapon for intelligent Techno bashes.
