Album Review

Ectomorph's fourth release for the label is a daring step in the effort to push the limits of vinyl as a format. The A-side contains two mixes of "Subversion" set up as a double groove — where each mix starts at the outer edge of the record on its own groove. In effect, the listener or DJ is forced to closely examine the piece of art — er — vinyl, to discover what is hidden and discern which cut pleases most or has a preferred function. The track itself exploits a highly processed vocal utterance for syncopation against Ectomorph's unmistakable rhythmic didacticism to reach the moody space also explored in the first three releases.
