Cio D’Or has had impressive producer skills for a very long time, but has always enjoyed a relaxed relationship with the limelight, often not releasing anything for years at a time. That means we are especially privileged to have this Yocta to Yotta 12” on our hands: four tracks of superb dub-techno released on Semantica.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 16 September 2015
Oh god, don't ever give me obscure techno 12"s to review. Not only have I reviewed the A side as the B side and vice versa but I've played the entire thing at the wrong speed. Let's start again then. I'm still going to talk about the B-side first as 'Yocta' is my favourite track here at either speed -- a sludgy piece of ambient techno with snagging snare hits. Sounds even better at 45rpm. 'Zepto' is a continuation of the same theme -- underwater gloopy precise minimal clicks and cuts moving along at the pace of a particularly dilapidated Morris Minor.
Overleaf 'Hecto' is dislocated piece with some lovely warming ethnic instruments -- it's very minimal and the expected build up never quite happens. Still, this is very evocative stuff. 'Yotta' is the most dance floor friendly track (that's only relative asa no-one in their right mind would dance to this). It comparatively pounds along with a 4/4 kick and some synth squelshing throughout. There's a space around the track which further gives the impression of it being played in an empty aircraft hangar.
