"The Berkane Sol label returns with another quality 2 tracker created by Nottingham-based producer Geiom. 'Unnecessary Stress' on the A-side introduces new vocalist Marita -- her sultry style floats in and out of the mix creating a hypnotic dream-like atmosphere that brings to mind the more spaced-out moments of Tricky's back catalog. But this is not trip-hop -- the drums and bass that power the tune are coming straight from the future. The bass line stays constant throughout but goes through subtle changes that somehow make it fascinating to follow for the full 6 minutes. Spooky bell sounds in the background and some seriously dubbed-out mixing techniques pay respect to the legacy of the classic Jamaican studio masters and give the listener a truly immersive experience. This is 100% late night material -- a pleasurable foggy haze seems to surround the track. 'Auxology' on the flip takes things into a much brighter world of sound. The melodies on this tune evoke a mixture of retro computer game soundtracks, grime riffs and pure ambience."
