A long-time outsider in the scene, Heartless kept his productions close guarded until recently. After honing his craft as a resident DJ, promoter and sound boy, his emergence follows the gradual building of a studio. Spurred on by the recent rise of modular equipment, which finally presented the medium to express his vision, and a return of figures such as Steve Bicknell, whose sound and ethos were the source of early inspiration. Hazy modular sequences stretched out and crushed laid over unrelenting kick drums, creating a determination of mood in conjunction with futurist sounds. Heartless is finally allowing his bruised and organic expression of techno to be heard.
