Distal returns to Tectonic with a solid four-track EP that spans the full range of his production ability. Taking in elements of crunk, techno, dubstep, house, footwork, and hardcore, Distal flips the script upside-down and inside-out. "Ridge City" kicks the EP off to a flying start with a barrage of relentless snare rolls that jitter in sync around a more grounded string hook. ''Drone Circle" is a unique blend of industrial, distorted drums, disorienting vocal snippets and soothing sunset pads. "106 Degrees" switches up to a 4/4-based kick drum pattern for this sweat-inducing 808 drum workout -- cutting in distorted riffs and deadly sonics to bring a well measured moodiness to the EP. Closing things off is ".25 Automatic," which sees Distal drop back a gear for a slow-building, deep-crunk electro affair -- melancholic pads and acid scribbles fill out the sonic landscape as the kick drum progressively distorts into action.
