Fittingly, Croatian techno projecer Alen Spionjak's has endured a disrupted career. In fact, this 12" for Vakum contains his first new material for nearly three years. We'd argue that it's been worth the wait, though, because Silom is really rather good. Head straight for opener "Velika Soba", where the Croat wraps darting, '90s style stabs around a rolling, kick-drum dominated tribal techno groove. The track's vintage explorations are explored further on the accompanying Basic Soul Unit remix, which is both fizzing and dusty, as if it had laid dormant on a DAT for 25 years. On the flip, Spionjak delivers a cheery chunk of electro positivity ("Suburbia"), before showcasing his IDM composition skills on the equally alluring "Zbrejkana". Superb stuff all told.
