The problem with Sowing Paranoia's limited runs is that his Madrid crew—Jorge Bule, The Transhumans, DJ F.—consistently produce special music, but a lot of people don't get to hear it. The gentle interplay of rippling chords and wiry percussion on Bule's "Rods From God" is worth anyone's time. Bule's other effort, "Helios 1," isn't quite as interesting, but its stumbling drums and dank, claustrophobic vibe are still effective.
It's Sowing Paranoia, under a new alias, Hunab, who really brings the record to life. Recalling his own Research Music Lab LP on Silent Season last year, "Ixtab" moves with both speed and grace. "Sinus" is streaked with a similarly luminescent melody, but adds tinkling notes to the mix for an effect very much like Conforce's "When It Appeared." And just like Conforce, Sowing Paranoia's attention to detail gives his work a startlingly vivid quality. It's a shame only 200 people will be able to enjoy it.
