Definitely lacking anything but inspiration in the studio, Mr. Sydenham rides the wave of productivity with his latest EP of Techno-Funk for his Apotek label; an EP that might have you reaching for the number of the nearest veterinary clinic. Bad Dog shows Jerome exploring an experiment in thoroughly inspired Chicago-House flavoured Techno. Lake Michigans chill runs all through the bass, hats and snares. A-sides dont come much better than this. Completing the A-Side is, Rabid Dog. This is some foam-mouthed Techno with a lighter hint of old-school Chicago. The B-side makes it all safe to pet again. Good Dog is a classy tune complete with Detroit stabs that get the Jerome treatment and a heavy dose of perfectly tinged 909 hats, that slice right through the mix. Stray Dog, brings it all full circle with a dementedly percussive tom rhythm. This device will get you out of any jam, when straight up beats with depth are called for.house.
