8/10 Brett Staff review, 09 December 2010
After what has since become known as 'The Great Terror Danjah Mislabling Disaster of Half-An-Hour Ago' I'm not 100% convinced I'm reviewing the right tracks here but never mind. Oh, there's a voice going 'Ikonoklast'! That's helpful! The lead track doesn't last long but kinda reminds me of Headhunter's stuff around the time of Nomad, except with some of those squiggly radioactive synth worms wiggling their way over the top. The Funkineven remix of 'Idiot' is bang tidy, I've got to say. I'm particularly loving the crisp drum sound and the way it keeps switching up from minimal and thudding to dextrous and distorted.. It's almost enough to make you forget about the classy electro melodies that as pinging around above it. 'Yoshimitsu' makes me wish I was bombing around Tokyo on Metropolis Street Racer on the Dreamcast.. Perhaps that's just the title being all suggestive and stuff but I definitely think it's got a futuristic city sort of a feel to it.. A bit of a Blade Runner thing maybe? The Joh remix of Ikonoklast is pretty strong also. A nice EP!
