Rumour has it that the aforementioned blunted boy wonder is, in fact, Proper Records head-honcho and regular contributor for Sm:)e communications – Steve Stoll (a.k.a. the bloke that was billed to head-line the Proper tour that recently visited Radost FX). I don’t know about that and frankly, I don’t much care. What is important is this record which contain 5 tracks (which, it should be said, is a bargain by today’s standards), 4 of which are fairly unastounding techno – you know, the sort of thing synthetic burps and belches over a clattering rhythm.
What does make this an interesting release is “Metropolis” hidden as the second track on the B-side. There is nothing glaringly obvious about this tune which is probably part of the allure, rather, a combination of a driving kick-drum, a crisp cymbal and double-time bell and a wonderfully twangy (if indeed that is a word) bass make for a tidy little builder.
