Throughout the 2000s, Manchester's Claro Intelecto (Mark Stewart) was known for his dark, pulsing, warehouse-ready techno productions for the Modern Love label. After a few years of silence, he turns up on Amsterdam's Delsin imprint with a more ruminative, melancholy variant of his classic, analog style. Like his colleagues Andy Stott and MLZ, he's slowed his tempos considerably, with tracks like "Second Blood" sinking into narcotic (even narcoleptic) stupor; others, like the pumping "Blind Side," will keep you awake at the wheel for those long, destinationless night drives.
