Richie Hawtin’s appreciation for the hardened techno output of Berlin’s Cabinet label runs so deep that he decided to showcase the highlights on his own Plus 8 imprint. Whether it’s the early rarities of Compass and Cab Drivers, or the unreleased hammerings of DJ Trike, Todd Bodine, and Daniel P, what you get with this comp is a payload of balls-to-the-wall techno that extends a firm middle-digit to anything even remotely resembling a DSP plug-in. This is techno done the hardware way-909 to the bone, with an analog soul that transcends time.
