Adrien Begrand: The new track by the Berlin house innovators is so minimal, and leaves absolutely no room for air. It’s that tight, that smothering.

Tightly performed but allowing enough room for abstract blasts of atonal drones, it’s the kind of combination of tension and release that had critics hurling hyperbolic praise to Viet Cong this year.
