released April 20, 2018

FNOOB DiGiTAL presents a new release from Emir Hazir, a veteran of Ankara, Turkey's techno scene and host of Fnoob Techno Radio's late _Mechanical Series_ program.
The new EP, _Obstacle_, features three tracks of dark, subtle minimalism.
The first track, 'Shade', runs rampant with a loop of subtle noise of unknown origin underneath a percussive monophonic sawtooth synth and kick drum with a clicky transient, all over a throbbing, enveloping bass drone. 909 percussion commences, accompanied by refined sound design, including a gorgeous FM tom sound and what sounds like hi-hat originating from a spray can.
This track runs at 128 BPM, danceable but not overwhelming.
The next track, 'Taraba', offers a darker experience building in intensity, thematically keeping much of the same sound design but introducing an ominous bass growl and formant-filtered synth.
The final track, 'Zigad', is the standout, introducing polyrhythmic metallic percussion falling into classic techno synth chords, pushing the pressure forward to 132 BPM.
