Side one has two tracks - "Chaosphere 4" - which forms itself on overdriven kick drum out of a red noise Industrial soundscape, metamorphosizing in it's simplistic single-minded approach to body music to gain relentless sonic momentum. Dance music stripped down to it's base elements, without having sacrificed it's effect. "Transference 2" is the longest track on the EP (at 10'43") and also the fastest by a narrow margin (150 BPM). Again House Music steps out of a swirling grey fog of synthesis, gathers itself and adrenaline-pumps the beat out of the speakers and onto the dancefloor. Again, the approach is fairly minimal & join-the-dots, but House has always been for physical rather than mental pleasure, and this track delivers where it counts. "Gravity Well" opens the second side, a very different approach from the flipside - minimalism of texture has been thrown out in favour of a congested white fuzz of angry electronica which arpeggios and twists this way and that, full-on and relentless. It sounds more like a tamed DOWNWARDS track - pounding piston beat wrapped in cyberpunk. "Chaosphere 5" returns to the smoother washes of grey Industrial noise punched-through by pounding kick drum pulsebeat.
