H Productions has had a slew of superb releases over the last few months, putting out uncompromising cuts from the likes of Jesper Dahlback, Alexi Delano & Xpansul and of course Cari Lekebusch himself. Nima Khak is a producer very much in his ascendancy, generating a unique sound that is perfect for H Productions and this first release Khak/H Productions release certainly sets a standard for future output.
The single kicks off with ‘Peppercorn’, a tough and intense slice of loopy techno that is driven along by a rolling bassline and insistent percussive elements. Dark and edgy synth stabs add a further level of fervency whilst subtle discordant background loops create an engaging and powerful atmosphere.
The flipside comes in the form of ‘Grind it Down’ another nine minute plus epic built around a floorshaking bassline and inexorable drum patterns. Dark and ethereal vocal snippets, acidic synth loops and an attention grabbing drop add up to make this a full bore audio experience that is certain to tear up clubs, fields and warehouses wherever it is dropped!
