The majority of Obsolete Music Technology output from Chicago's Steven Tang has come through his own Emphasis Recordings label since he first started producing under the name back in 2007. He did however break with tradition by contributing an Obsolete Music Technology slab to Dolly in 2012, and Tang now returns with a second offering for Steffi's label. Across the three tracks, Tang's mastery of his craft is more than evident, displaying a rawness that is often craved but not always achieved these days. It's hard to pick out a favourite here, with the title track's classic Chicago vibe complemented by the more intense racing "Voltage Player" and the cascading rhythmic hits of "High Strung". Class always tells, and this Love Passenger 12" has it by the bucketload.
