Tadd Mullinix is a man seemingly incapable of settling on a name. Despite releasing under a range of aliases (Dabrye, Charles Manier) and being involved with plenty of groups down the years, the nominative glutton has gone and gobbled up yet another new moniker. X-Altera, it would appear, will provide an outlet for Mullinix’s more ratchet tendencies. The project’s eponymous debut LP is a lit combo of IDM, jungle, breaks and hard techno that, despite Mullinix hailing from Michigan, mines the rich seam of the UK hardcore continuum.
