It's not techno. It's not electro. It's not (sigh) IDM. It's Bitstream's first long player proper, a heady mix of brusing aural assaults, stuttering vocals and oldschool scratches, dipping a finger into almost every electronic honey pot and still coming up with something that can only have been done by by the Conner brothers. Never have an act - especially an electro one - established such a unique sound so quickly.

Doing away with the traditional 808, Bitstream pound you into the ground with scattershot kicks, processed snaps, pops, squeals and any other sound they can get their dirty hands on, forming challenging, awkward - almost dominating - soundscapes that flick from theme to theme without ever losing their thread.
Often sounding like several different, disparate tracks played at the same time, their music defies description, although its pretty safe to say this is one sick album, from two sick minds. Check.
