Review: Varhat – Hokenkok EP [POLYSON001]

Cabanne launches his new label Polyson, featuring two productions by Varhat for the A-side and a remix by himself for the B-side.

Varhat, one of the heads behind Yoyaku, is known to be a prolific producer, and has shown great eclecticism in his productions.

Under his Varhat and YYY monikers, he has released until now mostly minimal and house records. Recently he has announced that he was behind the Niwa Tatsui alias, showing another aspect of his productions, more towards electro and techno sounds.

With this Hokenkok EP we see another aspect of Varhat style, this time with a more minimal techno approach: to begin, we have Hokenkok on A1. A very minimalistic track that kicks things off with trippy, hypnotic sounds for the first minute, then adding a powerful kick. To accompany the track, glitchy lyrics start fading in and out along with claps as it progresses. For the A2, we have Chhulub, with a more loopy structure to it, starting off with a warm bassline, and building up with fading trippy sounds accompanied by a strong kick.

It’s this track that Cabanne decided to remix, adding that Perlon’s flavour. Driven by a punchy, rolling bassline with harder minimal kicks, this track is sure to get any dancefloor moving.
