AnD – Esoteric Systems (Repitch Recordings RPITCH03 – 2014)
The EP “Esoteric Systems” marks AnD’s return to Repitch with rampant acid techno, slightly revealing the duo’s experimental mind clusters on the flip.
The A-side hammers well above 130 BPM, the crowd firstly being served by blasting “Dusty Artefacts” which stands for AnD’s usual hard side tools, backed up by fretful and noisy “New World Order”.
Despite subdued bass action, “All Seeing Eye”, spasms from freemasonic rites bring us another frenetic track, the best one of the EP and acidiferous sinusoids of “Embryonic” take to a meeting with the Unknown in a stranded alien vessel.
So it’s another demolishing session by Andrew Bowen and Dimitri Poumplidis from Manchester and the guys are also preparing the debut album “Cosmic Microwave Background”, expected on Electric Deluxe in October.
