"TruTek is a trio from the midlands consisting of Rutile, Panza, and Senate. Between the three of them is many years of experimentation if electronic production in forms as widely spaced as drum and bass (Rutlie is the editor of the drum and bass magazine Uprise) and heavy metal. In the process of all this experimentation, the sounds of the minimal techno influenced side of dubstep have crept in, which has led to a trio that from the very start is galvanized in the art of constructing some of the more intricate steppers to be pushed out of a sub. A clear touchstone for 'Crossrhodes' would be something along the line of the 140 leanings of Instra:mental should he be channeling the tropical elements of UK funky into that tempo, yet with leanings far more akin to that of LTJ Bukem. In doing so, we are witness to one of those rare moments of near grace in dubstep when a track can be overpowering with the lightest of elements. This one will likely become a secret weapon for many, and exist as that perfect way to add a bit of substance to the dancefloor. As for 'Mystery Machine' the trio take things in a slightly darker direction, with a subtle 4/4 that leads into a slightly old skool rhythm track territory, in a way that creates a bounce in its interplay." Includes a CD with the same tracks from the 12".
