By remixing a  classic track from Robert Hood and Claude Young, the German trio FJAAK  have chosen an audacious way to reboot their label. Then again,  "classic" is a relative term here. The Missing Channel project is a fine  relic of early '90s techno, but it's far from Hood or Young's  best-known work. Remastered and remixed here, "Onslaught" came out in  1991 as the first release on Hood's Hardwax label. It's a rave-up that  collapses breakbeat hardcore with high-octane elements—hoovers, crowd  noises and a rowdy energy—of American techno. But even in this  remastered version, "Onslaught" shows its age by sounding muddy—it might  stick out like a fly on a wedding cake if played sets today.
