"With a discography reading like a handbook for the rum and uncanny, electronica mainstay Kelpe is an obvious graduate to the Team Acre-associated university of drum wrong and mutant fuzz. Here teaming up with multi-talented human rhythm machine Chris Walmsley (Voice of The Seven Woods, Broadcast, Psapp, etc.), Kelpe brings an EP that balances deftly between the sound of yesterday and tomorrow. 'Margins' is a wriggling slice of traditional drum funk. The steady gallop is haunted by holy ghost rousing keys, zap anomalies and unearthly guitar work. 'No Film' is a moody and low-slung drum excursion. Intricate rhythms provide the solid foundation for unsettling synth work and fragmented stabs of citric sound. 'Toy Castle' is pure bounce, the pounding kicks push the soundscape through the dance and the sonic scenery is littered with hidden artifacts. The final excursion here is a trip to the lab with 'Taps On.' Initially, it is the most soothing of the bunch, giving nods to Dilla or ATCQ's more soulful offerings. 'Taps On' continues its journey through cut and paste territories and rhythmic breakdowns. All together a potent brew of electronic voodoo."
