Gaiser hits the floor running with another collection of heavy duty tunes, picking up exactly where he left
off on last year’s awesome Neural Block EP. Of course since then there’s been the collaboration with
Heartthrob on Nasty Girl with its inspirational fusion of twisted vocals and block rockin’ techno, so
needless to say this six track double vinyl edition (plus a bonus digital track) will be like manna from
heaven to devotees of his unmistakeable sound.
Striking the perfect balance between the romantic and the classic, Gaiser’s music stimulates the head
and heart in equal measures. First and foremost it’s all about the rhythm patterns - tough,
uncompromising minimal grooves earthed by ass–shaking bass lines and mercurial percussion
sequences that gel together with uncanny precision. Add to that the trademark atmospherics, unique
peripheral efx and the occasional warped melody or vox and you have a highly potent concoction.
Tracks like Eye Contact or Wet Contents will quite simply blow the dance floor away. The first, with
its sparse, patient build up, infectious snare fills and subtle synth patterns that seem to bob and weave
through the beats, culminating in a ghostly howl. The second with its freaky, time stretched vocal line that
ebbs and flows behind the pounding groove. This cut up vocal theme is continued on tracks like
Chlorine in combination with its hollow, resonating delays and sliding bass riff, Withdrawal and
Apology (digital only) adding an extra dimension to their eerie, cavernous soundscapes. The remaining
cuts - Sightblotch with its belching rubber bass line, ice-cool hihats and 60’s sci-fi fx and the tense,
percussive workout of Out of Sort - round off this superlative collection of laid back techno excursions
without dropping a beat.
