Previously collaborating on Truncate's self-titled imprint for 2021's "Hood Thang EP", Hertz Collision & Gene Richards Jr join forces again for "Must Do It EP". Arriving on Chris Liebing's influential and recently relaunched CLR imprint, the EP showcases the duo's knack for crafting raw, speaker-rattling techno and features a remix from Truncate.

Leading the release, the title track "Must Do It" is a dynamic, no-nonsense techno jam, complete with hyped vocals and sizzling percussion. Fresh from celebrating the tenth anniversary of his label, Truncate delivers a cast-iron groove in his remix, peppering the original with crunchy stabs and metallic delays.

On "Change", atonal bleeps meet a trance-inducing vocal loop as perfectly placed drum hits dance around central trippy elements. Bringing the release to a close is "Hunting Dimensions", which sees a squelching synth line morph and evolve alongside detailed FX and rolling drum patterns.

Liebing's iconic CLR imprint started in 1999, returned in 2021 after a five-year hiatus. Initially titled Chris Liebing Records until 2010, then Create Learn Realize until the break, and now Create Learn Repeat, CLR reemerged in the techno underground with releases from Liebing himself, followed by newcomer Frankie Bromley.
