A collaboration between techno visionary Neil Landstrumm and fellow Scottish producer Hostage, Modini (Dixon Avenue Basement Jams) plunder the deeper shades of techno and electro music. "The Answer (Version)" touches on the classic side of electro, its infectious vocal hook rolling over incessant bleeps and chugging 4x4 beats like a pitched-down Relief Records cut for the modern age. Its "Original Mix" makes fine use of twisting, loose broken beats before "Impressive Pineapple" ratchets up the tempo with rolling beats, head-scrambling bleepwork, a hefty bassline, and choppy vocals. "Saluting Magpies" features more bassline-madness and drilling drums alongside imaginatively off-the-wall samples.
