Within these stylistic confines, No Comment_0006 is more or less business as usual. "NCS_5600200512 [V2]" is a chugging, nocturnal affair, monolithic in its repetition save for the muted drones that hover just on the edge of perception. On the flip, fellow autonomous upstart Abdulla Rashim reworks the same track in typically abyssal fashion, all icy, rustling hi-hats and aquatic delays, just a glimmer of light peeking through in the closing minute.
The EP is rounded off by "P4S_88880003," which sees a return to the beatless, synth-based compositions that featured early in the series, but with a newfound volatility: where past efforts placed mournful, greyscale tones in a sparsely populated landscape, this one shrieks and groans as if aping the death throes of some alien creature. Nothing exactly groundbreaking here, but you get the sense that van Abbe is not concerned with pushing boundaries so much as collapsing the interstices between the various poles of his sound.
