Dubstep firebrand J:Kenzo continues to develop his futuristic, synapse-scrambling minimalism, while remaining deeply rooted in the community-led sound system attitude. "Urban Gorilla" epitomizes that aesthetic, with tough, ruffneck yet dexterous vocals from Ghost crew member Juiceman, famous for his appearance on El-P's 2002 track "Buck & Bury." "Expansion" trips still further into the dark, with its whiplash bolts of sub-bass and eerie, two-note refrain instantly recalling the characteristic immersive, physically powerful sets of scene lynchpin Youngsta. The EP closes with the instrumental version of "Urban Gorilla" recast as "Technoid," which draws out the track's contours in sharp, brusquely metallic relief.
