West Coast's most prolific techno producers in 2010 with releases on Timefog, Enemy, Subsensory, 4track, Impact Mechanics, Droid Recordings, and an upcoming remix with production partner Drumcell on CLR. Well known for his collab work with Drumcell, Audio Injection comes into his own on Droid 10 with remixes by Luis Flores, Acid Circus and Ambivalent.
"Normal World" gets the EP started with a classic rolling bass line and a building analog riff in triplets. The opener is stark, heady, and heavy, that unmistakable warehouse sound.
The title track "Exit Strategy" ebbs and flows with a dark atmosphere carrying the listener through low end growls and space verb clangs.
On the flip side "I've Fallen" pushes an addictive rhythm track that evolves alongside heavy bass, techno mono synths, and the twisted
chorus "can't get up."
Luis Flores reworks "Exit Strategy" from a tempered builder to a funky hoover bass workout, RZ-1 clap and all. Acerbic synth lines creep in an out of the 7-minute sequence and into the listener's subconscious.
Digital mix 1 Acid Circus ups the ante on this reinterpretation of "Normal World," a high energy mix. Crisp noise, tribal grooves, and thick analog synths all find their place on this thundering dance-floor explosion. Flange back hats and reversed subliminal
messages fill out the atmosphere.
Digital mix 2 Minus henchman Ambivalent injects a dose of a minimal funk into the "I've Fallen" mix. A hypnotizing vocal riff surfaces throughout the mix, accompanied by a shuffling rims-hot and intensely provocative sonic saturation.
