'A Name Out Of Place Pt. I' is a ferocious melding of excellent EBM technique and industrial percussion, with metallic beats pouncing on dark underworld synth lines. Tzusing is the dude responsible, making the usual gruesome noise out on the L.I.E.S. imprint, concentrating on marching drums that fill in any available space.

- A Name Out Of Place Pt. I by Tzusing
6/10 Laurie Staff review, 14 October 2014
This latest offering from the aptly named Long Island Electrical Systems label is a collection of cacophonous stompers from Chinese techno manufacturer Tzusing. The fact that this is his debut official release is at odds with the experience hidden behind the delightfully messed up beats present, rendering A Name Out Of Place Pt. 1 a rather exciting teaser for the young bloke. There's got to be a part 2, right?
There is a clear influence from synthpop here, just amped up to near electro levels of pump. The final track 'No Primordial State' displays sharply contrasting percussion changes on top of a Boddika-esque bouncy rhythm, while side A runs along the lines of Untold's recent Changes in a Dynamic Environment series on Hemlock, particularly opener '1976' and its gradual descent into diminished pitchbend melodies and booming distortion.
No industrial techno release is complete without a politically charged sample, in this case of an unidentified male prophet of a dystopian future where the only good that remains is the art of dance. While this is surely welcome when wrapped around a mostly fully formed basis track, unfortunately the underlying groove seems underdeveloped leaving the listener wanting a bit more than just a sample for interest. The first two thirds of halftime second track of side A similarly feels a bit neglected as is often the case with 3+ track 12 inchers, but as a whole this lad has a lot of potential so keep a look out for future empire building, Tzusing style.
