First on the EP is Accident and its monstrous kick drum which sets the tone for the rest of the track that builds with heavy claps and morphing acid pulses. Stabbing vocal phrases add some uplifting energy to this high octane slice of techno, which takes no prisoners with its dancefloor focused style. Track two XoX takes things up a gear with its menacing lead synth and rattling hi-hats that form a part of its mechanical groove, and that moves with the force of a freight train. Dark and mischievous, there is no doubt this track is perfect for peak time club sets, and will be a vital addition to the arsenal of any Techno DJs sure fire crowd pleasers.
