"Datathief's Device imprint steps up a gear with a new Disco Bag and the first offering from Bpitch Control superstar Eedio for this Manchester imprint. 'Hero' spans the whole of the A side and perfectly captures the finest side of all electro pop sensibilities, beautifully setting aside all things clash/punk/jizz...oh yess. A computerised vocal repeats the refrain while crunchy 8-bit pops provide much squashed action to sit alongside the deep synth bassline and classic electro beats. Awesome stuff. 'Breakage' on the flip erupts with another crisp Casio convulsion , slightly distorted synths making for some tough company, wobbling away with a muffled vocal giving it some classic Bpitch styles with that distinct devastated slant. 'Modulation', meanwhile, chucks us onto the dancefloor in earnest, a classic Blue Monday synth modulation providing the necessary squelch, vocoded stretches lending themselves to the beat with about as much acidic flair as is possible to condense onto wax. A perfect blend of New Order, Skanfrom, Bochum Welt, Memory Boy, Perspects and Adult."
