Positive Centre
Forever Optimum

Positive Centre rounds off an excellent 2018 in which he has already dropped work via Opal Tapes and In Silent Series with an LP for Horo (ASC, Ontal). Forever Optimum oscillates between two equally menacing electronic styles. On the one hand we have lumbering, slightly industrialised techno takes like ‘Ossified Cobalt’; on the other, haunting ambient vistas not a world away from Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement. Forever Optimum is eerie and memorable.

Positive Centre
The Leaf Switch

Opal Tapes. Very good label. One of the best, in fact. If you’re unfamiliar with the Teesside imprint then Positive Centre’s The Leaf Switch is as good a place to start as any. This is a record of terse, frosty electronics/found sound instrumentals. They range from dog-eared synth ambiences to the kind of obtuse anti-techno that The Trilogy Tapes has been so keen on recently.

Positive Centre
In Silent Series

Industrial techno savant Mike Jefford is pretty accomplished at this point, and he comes out full force on this release as Positive Centre. 'In Silent Series' sees him descending into the deepest trenches of the genre, bass buried deep underfoot. Jefford buries the beauty he's made and digs it up to the most motivating and constant of rhythms.
