Imbroglios 3 certainly sits in this experimental side of the French producer's catalogue. Two of the five tracks, "The Naked Shrink" and "Five Points," are freaky, disjointed soundscapes. "What's Wrong With The Picture?" is a wonky slice of half-step hip-hop that flits between lurching beats and hints of Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill." "Men V Dust" could loosely be described as house, but the lack of a kick drum will deter all but the bravest DJs.
The remaining two tracks get close to the blend of weirdness and urgency that's Bradock forte. "A Bunch of Cephalophores" layers a chorus of robotic voices in a way that's creepy, funky and inventive. "Dropping the Ball" is by far the EP's best cut. Mixing a shuffling house backing with muddy pads and unsettling vocal stabs, the record sounds like Moodymann in a particularly raw and menacing mood. (Annoyingly, it lasts only three minutes.) Imbroglios 3 isn't vintage Bradock, but it's still full of the character and inventiveness that has given him a peerless reputation in the world of left-of-centre house.
