"Brussels-based duo Yves De Mey and Peter Van Hoesen return to Time To Express for the label's sixth release presenting three varied techno tracks under their Sendai moniker. The title track 'System Policy' features a continuously evolving layer of dubby chords, carefully placed in a rich, resonating musical space. At first it seems appropriate to call it dub techno, but crisp percussion and a keen ear for arrangement lend this track an extra dose of funk. On the flipside 'Below K-pun One' is a classic Time To Express track, aimed directly at a willing crowd in a dark and sweaty venue. A deep kick drum and rolling bassline team up with industrial-sounding percussion, twisting and turning to full effect. Finally, Peter Van Hoesen takes on remix duties and warps 'System Policy' into a slow, grinding and moody track. He adds a touch of melancholy to the original, certainly his most melodic work until now. Soft, distant pads (played by Donato Dozzy) join the original chords and percussion, while a funky bassline references Peter's previous remix for Sendai's 'Sustaining The Chain.' Available on 300 limited vinyl copies."
