8/10 Ant Staff review, 01 March 2018
Japanese tag-team techno action from Kouhei Matsunaga (NHK yx Koyxen etc.) and Chiba City’s DJ Nobu on this 4-track EP on The Trilogy Tapes. ‘Snow Ball’ moves with the sort of hypnotic bleeps that were scattered around NHK yx Koyxen’s DFA album or the type deployed by Aleksi Perälä. It’s a mid-paced track somewhere between minimal house and chiming metallic techno. Repetitive, hypnotic and with distant icy atmosphere colder than a witches tit. ‘Smart Bell’ is looping monotone techno but as with the previous track, the duo adds a certain off-kilter wonkiness with lots of ripping, squeaking and rubbery sounds bouncing around to trippy effect. ‘Smooth Motion’ is a slower, chugging, jagged EBM style track that simmers and fizzes along and seems to sparkle despite being absolutely grubby. A dark tension filled groove
In ‘Look Back Motion’ boosts the energy with rattling open hi-hats, pounding kicks and sputtering acid. It’s like necking too much LSD at some evil trance rave and getting the fear as the walls close in to swallow you up.
