New on Bleep is this debut EP from fresh electronic face Spaces. Mixing crisp programmed rhythms and dirty compressed textures, with these four tracks taking you through slicing bassline, electro-funk, glitch and broken techno before easing us out with some kaleidoscopic ambient techno, Spaces promises to be one to look out for in the future.

Right you lot. Just 300 copies of this from a fresh faced bunch of electronica types who succeed in bringing something to that well worn table.
Opener ‘Apologies’ is lively and busy with spliced beat jiggling around cut up electronics to disorientating effect. There are a multitude of sounds bleeping away and at times across the span of the track you start to feel dizzy with it all (in a good way you understand). The production is very clipped and shiny with lots of hiccupy little sounds buzzing away. ‘Outside In’ mainly comprises of percussion until some twangy bass enters the fray, its just as busy bus less melodic than its predecessor.
The B side continues with this unclassifiable highly scrutinised sound on ‘Lever’; the synths are cut sharply, the moments of silence between the notes are just as important as the notes themselves. The closer ‘In Wait’ adds in some dark cinematic sounds and fizzing, watery splashes of synth and is possibly the best thing on the EP. It’s impressive throughout though and in a week where a master of electronic composition returns to remind everyone how it’s done, it’s great to see some young pretenders to the throne carry on the baton.
