Starting off with the title track, Fake Reality involves an ethereal ambiance made up of airy pads and lightning synths, while a fiendish vocal permeates every bar. Alternating strained build-ups with composed releases, each sequence dovetails fittingly into the next, painting a deep and dark techno incursion.
German trio Township Rebellion dive in on the remix, offering up a vibrant and melodic alternative of the original. Channeling on their own sound print, the melody seems to have an added spring in its step, following a drilling yet highly danceable narrative.
Frisk commences with a tension inducing, stretched build up advancing at a steady pace into a hazy number. Itchy hi-hats accent the climax, breaking down into an array of zig-zagging synths that linger on. The Beat bears a certain touch that helps all of the tracks cohere, making the release come together as a whole.
On La Musica Obscura, Niko enlists fellow producer UV for a gradually developing low key groove. Biting synths rev up into a spiraling loop that progresses along with the construction, while keeping feet and shoulders moving.
