On "Night City.Tokyo (London Version)" a sour rain drips over massive bass as creepy vocal samples and ambient recordings appear and decay into pits of reverb. Predictably, this live recording trades the original's ambient noodlings for a more sharply focused approach. "Endourban" is even more spartan, consisting of little more than trebly drones and a pummelling beat. Protoplasm is unashamedly cinematic, relentless and evocative, if perhaps lacking in diversity of mood. Still, that weakness is no doubt the upshot of being a live recording, and Protoplasm nevertheless augurs well for a rumoured album.
