Zentex - Saha EP

Would you know Jari Marjamaki was born in Finland but has lived in Portugal since the early 90s? Probably not from listening to these three tracks. I'm being nudged by the press release towards calling this minimal techno. If you're the sort who finds this kind of thing boring, then you're probably unlikely to hear it anyway.

The remix of Saha, by Cosmic Sandwich, is better than the wake-me-up-after-six-minutes original and does have a certain hypnotic quality. Saka (note the replacement of the "h" with a "k"), however, is the standout; dense in atmosphere and trippy noises, it would make a fine soundtrack to being wasted at 4 a.m..
