"Two of Europe's finest collide on a 12" 45 RPM platter loosely inspired by the club single. On Wet Wheel/Hot Wheel, Neil Campbell of Astral Social Club succumbs to the heartbeat throb of house but tops the bass with a frenetic squall of darting alien melodies. On cursory listen, the elements congeal into honest-to-god body music, but the track is riddled with stutters and gaps that the flooded synapses fill with aural afterimages. On the reverse, Jan Anderzen of Tomutonttu buries the dance influence, retaining only the genre's neon shimmer and linear logic. 'Syvat Svyät' overflows with cuckoo loops that briefly cohere into musical shapes before casting off, replaced by an ecstatic march of manic squiggles. One must focus to follow the train of musical thought, but Anderzen's humor and intuition reward the effort. Issued in an edition of 300 hand-stamped, 150-gram lavender LPs in matte sleeves screened with consummate skills by Alan Sherry of Siwa."
