"This will be the first in a series of stand-alone 12"s for Novamute whilst Luke works on a further, as yet un-named, album project for parent label Mute. There are three tracks on the 12". Opening with the electrically charged rush of 'Traktion Action', the single has a sound somewhere between full-on techno, Glitter-rock and the Human League. Furiously paced and built around an elastic melody, 'Traktion Action' builds into a frenetic finale -- all screaming synths and fingers in belt buckle boogie. Second track Intensity has a brooding sophistication and unashamedly poppy melody -- like Grace Jones hamming it up at Tresor while final cut EDBD sounds not unlike a finely tuned Dyson-hoover -- all echoey, rising melodies and metronomic beats."
