Mono Junk vs. Mesak
Deep In My Mind
A paranoid techno cut with freaky vocal riffs repeating the title.
Mono Junk’s DUM Records has been dictating trends in the world of minimalistic techno since the 1990s, and its 34th release is as special as any. This one comes from label boss Kimmo Rapatti aka Mono Junk vs Mesak, who is better known as fellow Finn, Tatu Metsätähti, aka one half of Mr Velcto Fastener and someone who has released on Dexter & Steffi’s Klakson. Together the pair serve up three mixes of their jam and an additional track.
Title track ‘Deep In My Mind’ is a paranoid techno cut with freaky vocal riffs repeating the title as gurgling synth lines and sleek drums rumble below. Twitchy synths and high pressure perc add to the hypnotic effect, and overall it’s easy to see this one making for some perfectly weird dance floor moments. The mix by Mono Junk is completely the opposite: in his hands it is a beat-less, serene and beautifully styled electro cut that takes you deep into brain soothing space. The ‘Electro Mind’ version is then a full on electro jam, with plenty of aqueous synths and fluid lines all squiggling along in classic Detroit style. Final track ’SYSdrum’ is back to the raw, with angsty drum lines, crisp and slapping snares and oodles of reverb all making for a brain frying trip.
