I am really seriously intrigued by just about everything that comes out on the Mordant label these days. Probably because I know Baron Mordant has got proper clever ears, not fake A&R coke head ears. Massive floppy basset hound ears that prick up whenever quality electronic music of a certain vintage occurs within earshot. This EP is by a man called Nick Edwards and from-the-off you know it's gonna be juicy fresh. Opening with a dubby mid-paced slice of ambient-tinged electronica laced with these beautiful searching cosmic synths. There's some lovely old-skool IDM style scrunched/glitched-out detail within the skittering percussion. I like 'Daytron Romance' loads. Once again on a shuddering dub tip 'Doctrine' 81 has a submerged mogadon dancehall feel with plenty of delay & phasing & other skanked-up effects brought into play. There's also a strong hint of Forest Swords about it, maybe in the curious tropical synthwork - that skeletal experimental dub element that feels really innovative. A monster hybrid tune with a right muffled meaty low-end which makes me giggle. He continues this merging of progressive cosmic keyboardery and off-kilter face-mashing dub on the excellent 'Arkrite'. 'Temporal Drift' concludes with a really old modular sounding synth that along with the dreamy cosmic synths gives the whole thing a very Kraftwerk-ian feel but the shapes stoked up here have many dimensions & moods to them. Once again, in a more implicit fashion, there are undeniable dubby elements but now presented within the framework of a long-lost 70's electro odyssey. Brilliant stuff!!!
