What a find. I love it when I hit the jackpot in my digging! This man is totally on point with his vibe. Fresh out last month, ‘Break Off’ is pure restrained intensity and a very deep space mission. ‘Steady’ on his Soundcloud page is, if anything, even better and more reined in? It needs a release soon.

This is almost a new industrial paradigm mercifully casting off the old EBM aesthetics? Cyclical springs, pistons, clanking, steam, pressure, furnaces burning in the night. Our old friends are still there but this is as futuristic and striking as the opening scenes of Bladerunner back in the day and absolutely what we should be striving for sonically right now. No bravado bullshit, ego-less. Just technical and cold and dripping with hydroponic bass groove.
