"After a long wait, the second record on Orac's 'Black and White' series is finally available. Called Inner Floor, it's the debut EP from Seattle's own Jon McMillion. Like unclassified computer funk before it, Inner Floor is an experiment for the dancefloor, adventurous and abstract. Without relying on obvious melodic hooks or retro rhythms, McMillion sifts beats out of a very personal collection of sonic material, and the result is ear-bendingly danceable. Sonically, Inner Floor owes something to the 'clicks and cuts' school but its beats are definitely aware of new minimal techno. McMillion coaxes confident dancefloor beats out of unlikely scraps of material, from the pervasive microfunk samples to the interdimensional choral slush of the title track and the wry guitar abuse of 'Make It Worms.' There are melodies here, but mostly hidden ones, darting in between parallel strands of distinct sounds."
