"Tonda" is a Bristol beast through and through, its greyscale techno sound palette enriched with serrated grime inflections and propelled along by thick, imposing globules of sub bass. That's not to say it offers up its delights easily, though—it's a solid two-and-a-half minutes before the full percussive battery is in place, each iteration of the beat ramping up the intensity in painstaking increments. "Dusted" is even more desolate—perhaps due to the plaintive, tortured synth tones that waft across its surface—while the pitch-black precision of its syncopations recalls the polyrhythmic techno of Szare.
"Turmoil" makes more explicit reference to its dubstep heritage, with lithe rhythms and organ stabs hinting at a slinkier 2-step beat before a foundation of trouser-flappingly deep sub brings us back to earth. Kowton, meanwhile, reworks the track into unexpectedly spacious techno, tempering the grime-derived brutalism of his recent solo outings with expansive synth washes that never quite reach the climax you expect.
