Since Kryptic Minds split ways in 2013 Simon Shreeve has kept himself busy putting out deep brooding techno productions under Mønic through the Tresor label and Osiris. Now releasing under his own name his productions continue to bury as deep as possible, and mixing his production techniques with techno just builds the tension even further.

This is excellent and cavernous and is what I’d image they’d call ‘bass music’ with four tracks of speaker battering low end using gassy synths and thumping percussion. It’s as scary as getting locked in an underground warehouse over the weekend. At least on ’Silver Sun’ the beats are voluminous to a point to could have a small weird dance to yourself.
My favourite track is the title track where (if I’ve got the speed correct) the whole thing is slowed down to a ridiculous churn. Massive droney synths create a chilling atmosphere as a lone bass drum thumps away. This is an example of how music like this can create a mood so unsettling that you are glad it’s not dark outside.
It’s slow moving monolithic stuff, like half paced techno with terrifying churns of synth. Possibly comparable to Cut Hands or Raime but this has it’s own brand of terror.
