New Electronica, Electro and Techno EP following the Empires + Empires Remixes EPs on Combat Recordings. Some of his best work to date, we reckon.
"Heavy glitch-ridden techno from anodyne who have a new home in Acroplane Recordings. Each track on the EP delivers the aforementioned technoid malfunctions, propelling them forward with funky breaks. Moods thrust through quick-stepping electro dynamism to hard-hitting 4/4 pressure, all the while the soaring synths in the background creating atmospheric warmth."
"Moody, complex, hardcore electro from one of the scene's most persistent, faithful operators. Heading 'Into The Unknown' for a darkside, dystopian flex, 'Bs-6' presents quick-stepping, stabby Electro suffused with arcing pads and the title track tucks into attack formation with old-skool riffs and real rugged edits. 'Reactor IV' is a more twisted, introverted Acid Electro mission, but the best is saved for last with the HardcoreXTechno momentum of 'Mr Nightmare'. Get on it."

'We Decode.." and "Bs-6" were my faves, 'til I heard "Mr Nightmare". Great work as always!.

A clever and dynamic mix of classic techno and ambient textures. Nice arrangements, simple but effective progressions, finely produced. Well worth the listen. Thank you.
