After releasing their two debut EPs via Verydeeprecords last year, audio/visual duo Function Level Marker is back with a collection of remixes. »01/02 remixed« lifts up the tempo of the originals and pushes them forward to the dance floor.
But this is more than just a compilation of techno bangers. The cassette shows various unique takes on contemporary club music: Warm and analog dub techno and house, noisey broken beats and uplifting 2020 drum’n’bass.

Five slabs of minimalistic, motorik krautrock. The repetitiveness is key here. C2S feels like a sonic mantra, while C3A is more akin to an aural sculpture - the way the entire song morphs through different polyrhythms over a repetitive guitar motif is just incredible to listen to.
This is my favourite zement release to date (2022). Its razor-sharp focus on propulsive krautrock is appreciated, all songs are bangers, and at 31 minutes, it doesn’t overstay its welcome. A perfect krautrock record. Smekermann
