Kenny Larkin's Azimuth LP, from 1994, is one of the only Detroit techno records ever to appear on the U.K.'s Warp Records. It's not hard to hear what they heard in it; the spiraling tones that open "Track" come from the same universe as Aphex Twin's unhinged ambient work, and the scratchy syncopations of "ESP" sound as abstracted as Autechre. Larkin's lush, aerated synths are the first thing that hit you -- "Azimuth" feels like bathing in overtones, and "Harmonics" is a full-spectrum brain rubdown. His drum programming seals the deal: tough, tight, fleet-footed and flawless.
