"Shay Raban (DJ Earthian), a virtuoso and versatile DJ and sound technician from Israel and the internationally-active Russian producer Oleg Slepak came to know each other at a desert rave in Colorado in 2002. Based in New York, their mutual project Animaltek is keeping every promise of a highest-level energy transformation. Compared to their almost simultaneously released 12" EP Innocent Robot/Night of Tvarok, Animaltek celebrate a more reduced interaction of rhythmic signals and systems on Karmik Loops, nevertheless displaying the same cautiousness by placing sounds in a high-precision way and still with a discerning ear for the detail. Small groove cycles are reflected in the superordinate concept and vice versa. The machines set up a fertile, pulsating bassplate from which sublime four-fourths and triplet loops ascend to harmonically communicate with each other. They report on the foreordination of club culture which definitely turns out to become romantic. Alice is dancing into a land behind the mirror ball where mass splits in marbled matter. A dual sunset of an iPod metallic-colored spectrum is warming the android beach. Here a plush astronaut witnesses the birth of the Venus of Detroit. Animaltek describe this sensation as 'a powerful effort of self-expression through rhythm, sound and harmony.'"
