9/10 Brian Staff review, 16 May 2014

I'm not familiar with Infrastructure, a label that has been dormant for 8 years. I know of Function and its sole pilot David Sumner. I wrote a silly, irreverent review of a recent remixes EP because techno occasionally leaves me speechless. That whole writing about architecture thing. Seems kinda pointless sometimes. What I wasn't expecting is this sublime approximation of prime Russian melodic IDM, early Skam and the highly sensual glide of Monolake that we have on this side of wax I is spinning during me lunchtime haze. The vibe is big, the room is small. There's not much more to say...it's a deep drifting pulse of glacial Siberian techno with a gently dubbed out countenance. It's great....beautifully constructed, moving and classy. Sorry, that was the b-side.

Over on the actual 'A' we get treated to a more insistent, punchy tribal effort, 'Odeon', based around Photek's 'Under The Palms', with its suitably lugubrious synth-line that pricks at the soul and nice echoes of early Autechre. It's even better than the other, 'Rhyl'. Once again Monolake fans will adore this, it's a classic cerebrally engaging style they're mining here; it sounds so urgent, fresh and graceful it will demand many a play.

A real quality surprise and subsequently the first techno twelve I'm investing in for many a week.....
