Good hard industrial thumping techno. It's got the solid chugging bass, cascading rhythms and shifting hi-hats, which all sound like a good time at the ol' saw mill tonight. There's a heavy sense of the mechanical side of techno on this record, which makes the new avenue that Byron Bogues has taken into minimal (and not very good minimal) tech-house very disappointing. This wasn't a big record, and didn't deserve to be, but it's still the best thing this producer has done. If only he could have continued along these lines instead of being swayed with the trends, he would have created a masterpiece.
