- Not Stochastic by Bruce

Along with Joe and Fis, Bruce is one of them new enigmatic understatedly monikered players of the "post-everythingstep" game. He's fucking good as well. I'm pleased to now know what stochastic means, also.
You know this is a great tune when loads of twats on YouTube "don't get it". The titular track is one of the three reasons that this twelve is one of my few consumerist techno releases of the year as it reminds me of what I found exciting about folk such as Zomby years ago. Zomby never smeared his tracks in low-level horrorscrawl distortion though. The rolling beat for this sinister, repetitive piece of music runs at a pretty kicking Ancient Methods pace and the melody is a cyclic astral glimmer of a thing, quite euphoric, yet kinda bittersweet, at odds with the slightly weird menacing vibe of the rest of the tune. One of my speakers has blown since I put this on. It was quite OK for the last bloody record!
'Trip' on the flip, a totally different vibe, almost Muslimgauze -esque with blunted woody sounding tribal beats, some neat phasing and a faintly sinister atmosphere, like the cold misty breath of a woodland demon on your nose at 5am. You could sacrifice shit to this tune.
Finally the brilliantly titled 'I Couldn't Move My Legs Fast Enough' makes this an essential purchase. A gradually expanding sonic world of possibilities forged from the ground zero of cosmic techno. A futuristic, propulsive and ecstatic piece of music for the backroom of your mind. Adorable snaky, skittery organic feel to it. I am listening to this on one speaker too. It still sounds truly mind-blowing and exciting. G'day Bruce, you just made mine.
