Jon Hester - Aether

Following Hiver's excellent EP, LET Recordings again welcomes American DJ and producer Jon Hester to their imprint. Currently based in Berlin but with previous spells in Chicago and Minneapolis, he returns to the label for a second EP following 2017's Communication EP, and other outings on the likes of Rekids and Dystopian. His adventurous drum programming and high speed techno style kicks things off with Radiance, a manically melodic track that takes you on an energetic trip. Impermanence is a deeper, more cinematic piece that features rueful pads but still a driving drum line, then Stratospheric has huge, hammering kick drums and squelchy synth sounds as well as dancing keys that bring warmth, groove, and soul. Last of all, this high class excursion is completed with Horizon, delivering barreling drum patterns and edgy pads that trap you in suspense as it races on. All four tracks deliver a high impact techno sound that very much looks to the future.
