"The chaps at Off-Key HQ have been busy digging out the old DAT tapes from their attic and sorting out the wheat from the chaff. For this release they go way back to bring you four more tracks courtesy of Kimble, a collaboration between Matt O'Brien and Matt Gates (aka Minor Planets). Kicking things off is the beatless sketch of 'Lycius'; spiky alien synths flicker and pierce through detached ethereal pads moving in the surrounding weightless space. Next up is the EP's lynchpin track, 'State Of Shock.' Proper techno is the order of the day here; this is an authentic old school minimal track first recorded in 1996 but left gathering dust ever since. Immerse yourself in the subtle dub inflected melodies swirling in your womb bubble while the slamming rhythm track provides the heartbeat. Over on the flip we chill things out with the haunting strings and aquatic bassline of 'Amb,' providing a delicate counterpoint to the upfront style of the A side. The EP is completed with a stunning remix of 'State Of Shock' by Minor Planets, who layer on a towering bassline and transform the original into a laid back dub workout."
