Who is David Barnard? He's apparently a reclusive chap from Wiltshire but once again, the Rephlex mystery trail deepens with the usual dickhead bloggers having fits as to whether this is actually RDJ. It's sounding less like him than some of the J.K. tunes also out this week. The opening tune 'F-Tron' is a smart cosmic house/disco thing that maybe has a kind of similar vibe to the less hectic & tech-y Tuss material. Then he treats us to a whizzy, euphoric, breaking electro choon which is proper boss. Over to t' other side, 'Syphonivc Flash' is a whipcrack slice of classic Braindance & probably the most Analord/Tuss-esque, with loads of gurgling, burbling hyper-melodies & searching, eerie synths. It's also quite similar to bits of the Wisp catalogue too and is undeniably set up to become an exemplary piece of Rephlex history. Moving into airier, sparser waters, the closing track 'Livingtones' is a dreamy mid-paced roller with some itchy breaks & a vast amount of intricate, beautiful detail. He's playing on the forthcoming Rephlex tour so if he ain't got long ginger hair your rumour mongering is redundant, yo. Which Rephlex 12" do we put in the recommendations because they're BOTH amazing?

Really great 4 tracker from rephlex. With the aritst RDJ/TUSS/ALESKI/DMX/ on the roster this record fits right in. Hopefully they continue bringing this sound to the masses!
