I am utterly surprised that there were no previous reviews for this record. I am not exaggerating when I say that this is one of the greatest EP's I have ever heard in life.
The title track is startlingly well crafted electro/acid with an incredible sample from Bass Patrol's 'Rock This Planet' which is warped in a way that messes with my mind. It starts off as straight up moody electro and ends in some 303 acid madness while maintaining the funky beat and atmospheric synths.

A smooth transition and it's ASHEED, the album's second track begins with an acid riff that gets progressively dirtier and louder while some harmonic ambiance sets the tone in the background which culminates in a truly oldschool keyboard riff that makes it feel like an acidhouse rave in glorious slow-motion.

MEATABIX follows, a straight up acidhouse dance track reminiscent of an updated and well produced Universal Indicator.The final track SALACID reduces the tempo, retains the 303 and adds a moody and thoroughly enjoyable synth melody that wouldn't sound too out of place on a BoC record although the similarities end there.

I THOROUGHLY recommend this beautiful shining little gem of a record for anyone with even a remote interest in electronic music.
