This is a really good record! I can hear everything from These New Puritans, early Factory Floor to This Heat and Disco Inferno in the first track which marries a grumbling wiry bass to a dancehallesque thud with tons of spangled, clanking, gurgling & ricocheting industrial-tinged samples, a yearning echo-flecked vocal and occasional flits of angular guitar. It's a very fine opener which is more than bolstered by the excellent subsequent tracks. There's tons of brooding atmosphere to these songs, a sort of bleak, pulsating urban dancefloor sensibility that sounds totally on-the-money. The innovative sample usage causes my thoughts to stray towards memories of the hugely pioneering DI but the styles of skittering dynamic beats, the hypnotic grooves, moody dystopian electronic rhythms & implicit technoid touches are thoroughly contemporary and wholly convincing. I'm not sure where this record belongs and I find it all the more enjoyable because of it's uncategorisability. This Southend-on-Sea unit claim they're influenced by lots of older, disparate styles but they've got something quite modern all beautifully sculpted & deliciously mesmerising going on here over the course of this debut 7 track EP...
