Available on 12” Vinyl. Contest for Supremacy EP is the second joint outing on The Trilogy Tapes imprint for NY based Producers DJ Spider and Marshallito. Mixing the harsh, head in hands pounding kick with funk tinged lo-fi surroundings. With the difficult to define monologue on Nuclear Winter, acid squelches and analogue squeals galore.

9/10 Laurie Staff review, 29 April 2015
This Trilogy Tapes 12” marks the two techers’ fifth occasion of locking musical horns, and things must be getting tense as their rivalry boils over. When combined, these two seem to be unafraid to knock in sound sources from any place, be it a dusty ol’ organ, assorted monologue, or even a spontaneous lounge piano sample backed by some group singing from somewhere in Africa. And that’s just the first track.
The esoteric techno binge continues into A2, with things getting a little more Acidic but still with some interesting ghostly flute fluttering away, sounding like an unlikely collab between Paranoid London and Daphni. Percs are all sorts of small unquantized scratches accompanying the upbeat kick with always a tinge of lo-fi distortion to keep y’all moshing. They roll out some intense echo action towards the end, but ultimately it pales in comparison to the thumping hat/stab frenzy of the final tune. Relentless and driving, this is height-of-the-night techno at its best. It’s still got that experimental edge but totally driven to Cleric saturation and beyond. Really great!
