The December project represents the slightly more experimental end of producer Thomas More’s work. Pumped up rhythms jostle against each other within each track, More having carefully imbued each part of the drum selection with just the right tone. Three original tracks and one remix by Low Jack. 12” on Where To Now?

Paris based producer Tomas More aka December, was, as some of you may recall responsible for the inaugural-- and as yet only release on Blackest Ever Black’s techno off-shoot label A14. ‘On a Leash’ follows a cassette release for Where To Now? and gets going with ‘Berd’ a slab of no-nonsense, tough, metallic techno with a groove that recalls old Regis gear with added crunchy, jackin’ claps and bird like whistles. Fellow Parisian dweller Low Jack (L.I.E.S. Delsin, In Paradisum, The Trilogy Tapes) turns in a dreamy, housier remix that has something of Legowelt psychedelic vibe going on.
‘East’ is a lot more chilled than the opening track but remains fully dancefloor compatible with both woody and metallic drums and muted, sizzling lazer zaps before things really take off with the appearance of a big rumbling bassline. Likewise ‘West’ is pretty laid back with booming mid-tempo kicks and what sounds like looped strummed guitar which could potentially sound disastrous in a techno tune but December manages to pull it off. Both ‘East’ and ‘West’ have a slightly hazy, lo-fi, dreamy kinda feel that reminds me of Patricia’s stuff on Black Opal but with more emphasis on arrangement than texture.
