I have to openly express my overall delusion with this one even though I'm usually not keen on writing negative reviews, but "7775-Line EP" is just boring, people. All total four tracks are over six minutes in lenght, with little to none variation throughout. To make it all even worse, what we're presented with isn't as nearly as entracing or interesting enough to validate the long track durations. Disengageing techno, which one would have trouble getting away with even when playing three minute segments of any given track within a rocking DJ set, due to their dependence on minimal percussion with identical loops repeating themselves from the kick off note all the way to the closing beat. The funk and groove Parisio is known to deliver is about three Star Trek episodes away from this 12", while the obvious lack of ideas and effort to attempt to involve the listener makes this a tough one to sit through in one swallow. The music itself does not captivate, it provokes that undesireable sensation when you're tensely waiting for some greater sound to emerge from the speaker, but it never does. It's just you getting irritated by 20 second samples on repeat going on for six minutes. And no, your record player is not out of order.
However, Reflex is an exception here, due to a different kick pattern, steering away from a typical 4x4 and having very nervous piano stabs at the very forefront of the track. I guess it could go well if played just before A. Kauffelt's Noisechamber. But that's just me.
