Yan Cook has already racked up a series of impressive releases on well respected techno labels. In December of last year, Delsin sister label Ann Aimee released a two-track EP entitled 2x2. Cook's music is as much about rich textures and soundscapes as it is heavy hitting rhythms. '2x2 and 'rhomb' are simplistic but constantly evolving, with wide delays and creeping synths. Despite being sparse and reverberated, his music is weighty and sure to appeal to early morning dance floors.

The limited hand stamped 12" is still available at Juno.
Cook's latest offering comes on French label Silent Steps. Personal highlight 'Snap' encapsulates Cook's signature dub-techno inspired expanding synths with tough relentless percussion. It's fresh and exciting techno from the young Ukranian which has seen him booked at clubs such as Tresor. Hopefully he'll be visiting the UK soon.
