John Heckle’s first one for 030303 starts off deliciously with “Translate” being a moody and melodic and bouncer that caters to a twisted dance floor. “Terix”, the opener on the B-side is a beautiful reminder of Derrick May’s Detroit, Rhythm is Rhythm’s “Kao-Tic Harmony” in particular. The end of this record then, is like the end of most nights: with lots of melodies going on and a stomping rhythm “Hear Me” is by far the most mind bending track of this excellent 12″.
I see a grip of EOD tracks, I buy. Simple. One of my fav Rephlex alumni holistically homegrown sound & sequence wizards. A lush lord, a 24 speed frisky gear spinner, a hoot and a holler and a warm bass ‘n breaks breakfast in bed bewildering tapestry of sprites and wingdings. A melted, hot-tip prod into a padded gymnasium fashioned with chutes, ladders and inter dimensional strobe foam pits. And there’s a doorman along the way to provide the obligatory steamed towel and mints. Virtually Yours
