Fuelled by ‘nothing but amaretto’ and a new found zeal for harder dance floor manipulations, ‘Conducting the Method’ delivers a combination of militaristic techno stomp, diffuse distorted melodies and break beat explorations.
The titular opener fuses squirming melodic fuzz with a rattling break and holds off for a good four minutes before allowing the bass to appear. The real action begins with ‘Modern Conflict Theory‘ and ‘Sothis‘ – the former primed for the floor with a speaker tattered creep of a lead line thoroughly blind sided by jack hammer kicks. The latter delves into strange realms of scattered junglist explosions whilst bristling with a deep techy attitude.
Quite a departure from previous work (should we blame the amaretto?) yet gets full recommendation from these quarters.
