Probably my favourite part of Primordial Soup and A. Mochis best EP in 2010.
Restore is a great hard pounding song with an interesting tabletennis ball sound effect that always "bounces" a bit off rhythm (or at least not on a quarter note). The breaks between the hammering kick attacks almost sound like aliens howling for backup before the final onslaught.
Visible follows with a hounding woodblock-like melody that echoes in the abyss of A. Mochis ferocious sub-bass empire while hurting itself by only grazing the razorsharp hi-hats and white noise screeches. Again equipped with deadly remorseless bass that will make anything on the dancefloor stand in awe if not prepared.
The last track, Alpha, closes on a rather relaxed note, reminds me a bit of the legendary "Brunt" of his Black Out EP. Sounds as if one was trapped in a cave with no exit to be found while giant machines are digging your grave thousands of feet above you.
Nothing outstanding really, but Mochi has never been about innovation. This guy is all about the magic of repetitiveness. You think Cocoons latest releases are too uplifting and Drumcode aren't releasing dark cold techno anymore? Then this record could very well put a smile on your face.
