The functionalist tag is oft-abused abused these days, and would again be abused herein, but Le Dom is not quite a functionalist. His sonic palette is not restrictive, but tightly regimented, with machine-like rigor, and exploited to its full potential. Punishing percussive sections approach logical extremes, careful not to surpass them, before making way for escapist, yet restrained melodies that betray the EP's emotional core. A constant dance between full-frequency onslaught and spatial economy occurs in the sound spectrum. Le Dom's music is thusly divorced from perceptible influence, reference, or suggested medium, lending itself equally to home listening, specialist club rinsing, and arena/festival performance.
