Motech Records proudly present label regular P-Ben a.k.a. Benjamin Geelen with 'Kybalion EP' for what is the 137th release from this highly respected Detroit label.

The 'Kybalion' title is taken from a famous book about the study of the Hermetic Philosophy of Ancient Egypt and Greece. The title track kick-starts the EP in pure analogue distorted perfection resulting in high energy techno at its finest. Producer P-Ben adds, "this track is inspired by a tool track from the '90s, based on rhythms from the Tr-909 and samples from an old polyphonic synthesizer". Track two on the EP is 'Hors Normes' which moves to the metaphorical darker and harder room in the club - expect an industrial, pulsating, relentless tribal-techno groove! A track influenced by the work of the great Ben Sims and his Hardgroove imprint, P-Ben says, "this track utilises a few samples from my vinyl collection, which worked really well".

Track three is titled 'Unforgiven', and as P-Ben points out, it draws inspiration from the legendary Jeff Mills, specifically tracks on his momentous Purpose Maker towards the end of the '90s. A beautifully textured track with great use of reverb and subtle, harmonically pleasing piano stabs layered between percussive tribal drum patterns forming the perfect glue in this minimal groove. Commenting on the EP's final track, P-Ben says, "its dark and very cavernous side immediately reminds me of a cathedral", hence its majestic title. 'Cathedral', with its driving, reverberating techno and twisted grooves is a modern classic stomper, to wrap up another top quality release from Detroit stalwart, Motech Records.
