Whatever Ekoplekz (Nick Edwards) is on, I want some of. Or do I? Could I handle it? Is it some new genetically altered acid laced downer? Or could it just be some earl gray and a weekend reminiscing about Bristol's musical legacy? This 12" vinyl is out on West Norwood Cassette Library. If Richard D. James and Delia Derbyshire met in an alternate universe (the west country), Rock La Biblotek EP would be the result.

It's an impressive feat in itself that Nick Edwards aka Ekoplekz has pulled a 6 track EP out of the bag so soon after August's Four Track Mind, but then I guess if you're an experimental tape deity then every morning must be accompanied by a fresh pot of black loops and a bowl o' analogue abrasion. This delivery is billed as his clubby stuff by WNCL Recordings which takes me back to this party where a dark IDM bloke followed up a brazilian funk band and promptly ended the night. Kids, don't try this at Fabric.
Nick must have a wee grin on his face as a regular kick pattern is inserted into the openers for both sides A & B, a one-way ticket to big room anthems, right? Well, you'll be happy to hear that he is being 'Sarkaztik' - this is still the same Ekoplekz, jamming around gnarly dissonances and hissy ecko tails til he gets bored. Boring this is not. The looping soundscapes of 'Evakuate' and 'EDropkone' serve as a righteous extension of Four Track Mind, with his miscellaneous synth blip ensemble still raring to go. Helpfully, the almost-klub beats have been labelled for us - 'Metronomik' and 'Ekztatik' are actually surprisingly easy to tap along to, and with the recent return of weird electronic to the spotlight (thanks Syro), may spell the inclusion of music like this in techno sets. Go on, you know you want to help usher in a new era of murky downtempo beats.
