Her claustrophobic, drum-focused techno sounds as if it couldn't exist without the exact machines powering it. It's an aesthetic anchored to its own limitations, on which Hauff has pushed since her first record in 2013.

Niccolo Brown Having battered techno into submission on her recent, excellent "Lex Tertia" EP, Helena Hauff delivers a debut album that hauls electro over the coals in similarly uncompromising fashion. Discreet Desires" is a moody beast that doesn't mince its 808s, but tracks like the skittering "L'Homme Mort" and the calliope gone critical gallop of "Piece Of Pleasure" betray Hauff's ear for a searing melody.

Helena Hauff returns to Werkdiscs/Ninja Tune with a 5-track EP Lex Tertia - her first for the imprint since 2013's Actio Reactio. Released 30th March 2015 on 12" and digital formats. In her won words: "Lex Tertia is a further exploration into the idea of grimy, sonically crushed, dysfunctional, insane stuff that kicks on where Actio Reactio left of. Helena Hauff returns to Werkdiscs/Ninja Tune with a 5-track EP Lex Tertia - her first for the imprint since 2013's Actio Reactio.
Hauff continues to make music in her dark, bubbling techno style. If you liked her previous ep, you'll like this a lot too. The precussion is crisp and the overall atmosphere is riggid, robotic. Reaktion II, the 8 minute climax to the ep isn't as chaotic as Actio Reactio is, but it's a highly danceable tune with a great groove that doesn't get stale. The songs are bruting and cold, but also oddly welcoming.
