Maelstrom Vinyl, CD & tapes by Maelstrom at Norman Records
More electro from the Central Processing Unit label. This time it's from Maelstrom, who returns to the label after July 2018's ECZO, with the four-track EP Fragment. The bass is as tough as you might expect, and I think I detect a hint of acid? I'm no expert. Most impressively Maelstrom is not afraid to vary tempos over the EP so Fragment will have something for every DJ.
Maelstrom brings us up to date with current acid electronica, dishing out all our favourite squelches drenched in sci-fi space pads, skittering beats and arpeggios. At times contemplative, at other times approaching a frenzy, and often both extremes at once, this album is a constantly moving orgy of machine song.
