"The second twelve on Bristol's freshest new imprint, Tectonic. 'Shellcode' opens with the sound of a droid being disinterred, slowly and with relish, to the sound of some very sizeable bass stabs. But the feeling is cooled by a swathe of bass which raises up this chilling futurescape into a thing of deep fascination. The groove is determinedly slowed, and therefore tougher and more substantial -- 'Murky' wades in with enough brutal bass -- there's tabla styled congas and an ethereal indo-inflected melody which winds through the tune, all sinewy and limber. There's a sense of continuity here with the berimbau of 'Alien Tongue' from the first Tectonic EP -- new directions for the beat, inside and outside the 'One'. 'Lost Tribe' seems to describe the otherworldly choral haunting which clouds the intro to this storming cut -- there's an ominous texture between the beats which seems to indicate this tune could have been recorded in some unnamed underworld region -- it's a dystopian vision -- confirmed by the righteous bass shockout which propels this heaving brutal dancefloor destroyer."
