Whaaaat? Not one comment for A2 Auditory Sense? Gah! The light staccato stabs with slowly extending release, the floaty rounded echoes of the bubbly melody, the subtly ever changing hihats and shakers adding rhythm. Quality production on this. Evokes memories of hot summer days, carefree, walking fields and dunes, loving the moment, colours blinding yet muted by heat haze, not caring where you have come from or where you are going to. Bliss.

I agree with Mentalist on this one. I first stumbled upon Perception a couple of years ago, and felt as if I'd discovered something unlike anything I'd ever heard before. Multi-layered grooves, oscillating swirls of sound, syncopated rhythms and a hypnotic reversed vocal sample repeated throughout, it's a track that truly takes you on a journey like no other. It takes a little while to build, but its still not long enough. The climax comes when a haunting string riff glides across the intense combination of grooves, complemented by some glittery arpeggios. I genuinely felt nothing could come close to beating such a beautiful track.

Then, about twelve months later, I came across Endogenous Rhythms on a compilation, and it seems I was wrong; I had found something I loved even more than Perception. Again, a multi-layered, hypnotic tech house groove, this time burning slowly across 11 minutes, Endogenous Rhythms lives up to its name. Never have I been so caught up in a groove before; it leaps and bounces all over the place, building and building upon layer to create this incredibly complex rhythm of epic proportions. Twice the groove fades to a mere drum pattern, before bouncing back to life with more oomph than before. Like Perception, I could genuinely listen to a groove like this one for hours. It is, however, stylistically rather different to Perception.

I've only heard Pons and Auditory Sense in passing via YouTube out of curiosity, so probably haven't given them enough time to simmer so as a result I don't feel I can really comment on them. R-Factors' other big track, Vis-A-Vis, is also one I'd say to check out as it's very rhythmic although more tribal than the tracks on this EP. Regardless, Dobre is a genius, so don't be afraid to part with your cash to buy his incredible productions.

maybe one of the most original Touché release, grooving, hypnotic, deep and still very playable in 2015. All four tracks are excellent and quite different from each other.

This is one of my all time favourite records. All four tracks have their own off-kilter unique style, and are unlike anything else I can think of. Excellent listening when you are completely muntered, and if DJ-ing, presents plenty of opportunity to completely confuse your dancefloor. Endogenous Rhythms is perhaps the best track.
