What a record! Klon Dump's sound design is always tremendous and the way each element hits with so much punch or crispness ties this together for me. Super functional and very refined in every aspect
Favorite track: The Risk Taker.
Five alarmingly immaculate, impeccably produced wrigglers from this side of the Spree. Twitch, prang and Bimmer-kid swing included for you there in the corner. Eight-legged tek’ouz, bleep and shades of grimelight meet GRM-school ilektro-acoustic spectralism. Sub-low basslines guaranteed; “dreamy”, “lush”, "soulful" (oh, God) pads absolutely unwelcome.

It doesn't surprise me that these tracks come from "deep cuts found on obscure compilations and unusual formats like Minidisc and CD-R," as Resident Advisor stated. This comp very much brings me back to the CDs that would sometimes come with music zines I'd buy at Tower Records back in the early aughts (except this is a more cohesive mix than those). World of Echo (he/they)
