The 8th release on False Industries is our first ever all Israeli artists release. After some releases with more ambientelectronica vibe, Hakimonu brings us back to our original area, minimal techno. Trust us when we say, this release is far more than just a formula or a framework done well. Humble Israeli producer Hakimonu has a talent for gracing our ears with a very special blend of refined electronica. Aside from a sunny biography that is written about him, there's not much information to be found online about Hakimonu. Whoever he is, the Israeli artist has been taking a uniquely lush, laid-back approach to house music for only a few years while already producing more than a dozen EPs, primarily on the digital Hakimonu imprint. At the very end of 2011 he released: Cadences & Framework Techno Sketches - EVER, an exceedingly pleasant collection of material pulled mostly from prior releases. Assaf’s music is aiming to cure. Assaf creates his music and artworks to try and cure illness one can see and feel in collective mental psych of now days. For False Industries, Assaf created a special EP. The release moves from minimal techno, that brings to mind older and more minimal works of Luciano and Ricardo Villalobos and more delicate ambient works that brings to mind The Sight Below. The release starts with “On Surface”, where piano textures and beats are created by heavy digital process. “Could Happen” uses minimal beats, and electric piano, to create a moody minimal techno tune. “Good through blue” is lovely, very moody with beats that brings to mind Alva noto or Komet, yet Hakimonu use of melodies adds his special flavour. “Visage” keeps the same line, which is remote, yet very emotional, and the finishing tune “Last”, got some great melodies and textures. To spice it up we added some remixes from prime Israeli musicians and producers. The Models remix of “On Surface”(Harel Schreiber and Itamar Weiner) both masters of the analog domain, and long time collaborators, starts with a killer 808 beats and destructive acid line. That brings to mind chicago old school house. Max Schreiber's remix of “on surface” is dark, with certain amount of tension created by drones covered with killer overdrive. It killed us. Label boss Yair Etziony, takes “last” main melody and takes send it to another domain. Using many analog delays and filters he creates a slow techno-dub with massive textures that fly near the listeners ears. Think GAS or Maurizio's M series but slower. A lot of love and effort were put into this EP, and those energies are coming back to listener, when heard.

As always, very into False Industries stuff.
Nice electronica / clicks tracks, although the schizoid 'Max Schreiber's Rework' and the synth 'The Models Remix' are my fave ones, fantastic ones!
