Album Review

A compilation of three previously released EPs on Force Tracks, Rhythmogenesis propelled MRI from obscurity to the lofty status of being one of the world's leading tech-house acts. The individual EPs that preceded Rhythmogenesis — Dauerläufer, II, and To Be Honest — had turned heads in the 12" market.

Furthermore, MRI also incorporates elements of glitch, which distances it from traditional tech- or dub-house. It's no surprise then that Rhythmogenesis propelled MRI from obscurity to stature, setting the stage for a much more dynamic follow-up album, All That Glitters.
