We took our time listening to Chex’s recordings, experimenting with the tracklist.
Putting the strongest tracks in the best flow we could.
From the deep broken step of opener Ankylosaurus Magniventris to the mighty sound system testing acid infused roller Uncertain Future. An early favourite, Puxton Bridge melds trippy vocal work into a dark dystopia.
Kitchen Sync goes deep and wide with a beautiful oceanic trip of far off places. A properly serene piece of work. The closer Cumberland Vibe goes deeper still and on vocals is Phat Chex himself with a pensive piece of meditative percussion bubbling underneath. We couldn’t think of a better track of his to close a stunning collection of sound.

"EP is great."Jesse Somfay (Borealis) (Detroit Underground, Origami Sound)
"I have just had a full listen of the EP and I think it’s very nice work. I preferred the more abstract A Side tracks overall."Data Transmission02.04.2015"Mechanistic Overlap, the latest vinyl print from, underground cult label/radio station/blog Darkfloor Sound is a beastly slab of dirty techno influenced madness from five distinctly different, but aesthetically similar artists. And when a record gets big thumbs up from Objekt you know you are onto a winner.Vacated’s ‘RM2 (re-edit)’ - a filthy, dancefloor infusion of Akkord-esque drum patterns that have been dragged through a hedge backwards, Perc and Truss style distortion treatments, washes of reverb soaked industrial atmospherics and a hard, repetitive, subtly modulated bassline that will properly merk up any dance."
