Great synthetic techno, and one of Jamie Bissmire’s more inspired moments on Ground. Fully boasting his sharp sinister style through eight loops, two full length tracks and two short pieces ending in locked grooves, this is imperative DJ ammunition.
Ideal sounds for a night out in a distant abattoir where surreptitious acts of euphonious musical violence are carried out over the hungry crowd.
Sound wise located somewhere between early ZET/Consumer Recreation Umek and Pounding Grooves, with a healthy dose of that incandescent squeeze-your-head-between-a-rusty-grater-and-fresh-sand-paper-and-rub-your-cheeks-with-them Space DJz AK-47 sound.
A lot of shuffled synth work, nasty breaks, plenty killer beats and a lot of tongue in cheek trickery that will swoop down on the floor like a lost meteor. Not only that, but you also get an inscription in the run-in groove of each side, plus a brief story about the number twelve on the center label of the logo side.

Having helped set the benchmark for UK techno as one half of the Space Djz, the Ground imprint gets refueled by founder Jamie Bissmire as he drops two full-cuts, two short DJ tool cuts, and eight locked grooves all of which pack a serious dancefloor impact. Jamie's rock-hard 909 drum programs, dark grinding synth manipulation, strobing bass power and cold, robotic textures make this an essential selection.
