8/10 Clinton Staff review, 10 September 2015

No-one knows who Rita Furstenhof is. If it's another male electronic dude using a female moniker then I'm going to punch the internet.

Thing is regardless of gender of whether they are plural this is great. It's deep, dark electronica that both rates highly on the squelsh-o-meter and provides loads of atmosphere for those driving over hilltops late at night. Opener 'Hadron Collider' is based around a simple but effective four note bass motif over which terrifying synths are added. The track increases in tension as it goes on and seems to be split into two halves with an ajoining section like a wasp is. It's rare that I have time to write about top quality electronica these days so I'm really enjoying myself here. Overleaf there are two things  - 'Disco Flamingo' which has skittering beats, heavy synths and a 4/4 thump and 'Aa Viatel' with pulsating synth and another quality bass line.

These B side tracks are good enough but it's the A side you'll be playing.
