Claro Intelecto, real name Mark Stewart of the UK, has been exploring the dubbier side of techno for quite some time. Originally releasing on Ai Records, he later moved to Modern Love alongside longtime friend Andy Stott. His tracks near dubby minimalism yet maintain dynamic and at times dark narratives. Subtle and strong, just how I prefer my techno. Here’s some of my favorite tracks from his many EPs and multiple full-lengths. I especially love “Back In The Day” with its sample of Maurice’s classic house jam “This is Acid.”
