Paul Boex and Dave Miller have teamed up again as Abstract Division for another record trilogy on Boex's label, Dynamic Reflection. Dark and serious moods abound on Time And Perception, as the duo weaves sinister riffs through crisp, no-frills percussion on both "Fierce Tension" and "Comprehend." The former, with its offbeat metallic tremors, is more aggressive, while the mesmerizing effects of the latter will likely appeal to more introspective heads.
Shifted is the record's sole remixer. His textured take on "Fierce Tension" is geared towards blissed-out peak time. Abstract Division finishes things off with the beatless "Collision," which reveals an otherworldly landscape filled with sticky, twisted-up stalks of sound. It makes for an effective comedown, and (unlike countless other techno records' ambient sketches) deserves more than a casual listen. All in all, it's a fine start for Boex and Miller's latest endeavor.
