Established Berlin-based producer Carsten Aermes aka Phon.o kick-starts the Afterglow EP at 137bpm with "Mercurial," melting the boundaries between techno, dubstep, and footwork with effortless grace. A strange, cosmic journey with polyrhythmic layers of percussive interplay; kick drums bounce, snares crack, and the melody builds with mysterious intent. Recalling echoes of jungle music alongside techno sensibilities, "U8 Phunk" follows on again at 137bpm with a series of hyperactive drum hits and twisting percussive man oeuvres. The spacious "Bell Blender" further develops themes of broken breakbeats and grimy sci-fi atmospherics, this time at a tempo more accessible to techno dancefloors.
