The tune is, like Laubner's best work, droning but dynamic. This particular beat is double-tracked just slightly off-time in each stereo channel, creating a wet smear coated in a thick primordial goo, turning the hi-hats (I think those are hi-hats) into tinny slush. Its neverending cycle recalls the patience of prime dub techno but its palette is too sharp and raucous to fall into that genre trap. It's one of Laubner's best tracks since "Silent State," and for those who are familiar, that's no small statement.
The other side of the release is taken up by two tracks from Belgian producer Djorvin Clain's album Pattern of Thought on the label, and the relative unknown is a smart match for STL, taking the same blunted metal approach to techno. "The Untitled One" sends a clicking breakbeat through the kind of dark wilderness that adorns Silent Season's artwork, subtly tripping and catching over a kick drum that dips in and out of some subterranean abyss. Treading even deeper into the darkness, "Kajimeara" appropriates what sounds like a blast furnace for a hellish, heaving odyssey through Einstürzende Neubauten clank and Throbbing Gristle dread.
