"A successor to Soup in chronology only, this EP concerns itself with rampant use of computer sound processing technologies, a move certain to irk most who see a Bola as a tangible link between the Artificial Intelligence movement of nearly ten years ago (which itself was concerned with soft melody-oriented analogue textures and repetitive rhythms) and the 'neo-Artificial Intelligence' movement of today (producers like Passarani, recent Plaid, just about everything American or anything that gets too overwhelmed with the possibilities of contemporary digital sound design and related 'Autechretianisms', or production related effort in general). Not sure why this music is even relevant save for the Skam connection; the first track is a midtempo hip hop thing with vocoded vocals, the second a kind of midtempo tech-electro thing with industrial influences (sounds like a 'shapes' cast-off to these ears), the third an almost sub-Plaid downtempo thing with killer bleeps and first-tracky vocal bits, and the last another 'shapesey' one, pleasant enough if not a snoozer (but I suppose that's just it then, isn't it)." -- Hrvatski.
