‘Bohemian Grove’ EP is leftfield electro duo Xamiga’s third release. Being in possession of a plethora of highly desirable analogue treasures and under the influence of the Detroit electro scene, they have crafted a dreamlike soundscape of broken, foggy and sometimes distant sonic textures underpinned by distorted, intricate percussion with a menacing pulse.

It’s been a while since I’ve heard some decent atmospheric techno so I’m hoping that this collaboration between Legowelt + Xosar people will fill a hole. It’s a vibrant affair with some lovely skittering beats on the opening title track giving the tune an energy rarely seen in the more morose forms of techno. ‘Stratocumulus’ uses an unusual hissing 4/4 beat and whiney synths and changes tack half way through with some burbling low end bass synth.
Overleaf the nippy bpm's continue on ‘MidwestDR660Soup‘ with a lovely four note bass cutting a shard in some bell-like synth patterns. This is glorious stuff especially when some descending high end notes enter the fray. More bleak is closer ‘Blizzard21122012‘ which is the least colourful of all the tracks with the usual grey techno synths out in force but even here the beats are vibrant and lively.
