There's apparently an established Berlin producer behind Theme, and whoever it is, they sound like they're trying to make the drum & bass tempo sound anything but. "Theme 1" glides on a DeepChord-style heartbeat and carefully fogs up and then clears out the horizon over and over again. "Theme 2" is slightly more persistent, and sounds rough yet marvellously smooth in parts, textural complexity that you can get lost in.
"Theme 3" is like a dub version of its predecessor but more epic—this one has strings to light up the silence, and ups the ante on the theatricality with booming percussion. The EP winds down with an ambient fourth passage, a more relaxed trawl through the same landscape. Though the EP gets samey around track four, Theme turns drum & bass in on itself and comes up with something unusual but beautiful.
