Ghost Miners has two different modes: banging but groovy, and utterly brutal. The first record packs in two extended, blistering techno cuts—fast, relentless and slightly demented, in the same vein as I-F's classic "I Do Because I Couldn't Care Less." But as confrontational as they are, both tracks are deceptively catchy—the drum patterns are just funky enough, and there are infectious quasi-melodies embedded in their sandpaper textures.
Wilson lightens up on the second record, but only a bit. The A-side begins with eight bars of a shrill arpeggio, then drops abruptly into a chugging deep house groove—bongos, mellow chords and claps, but with a nervous urgency that's pure techno. The A2 sinks those chords deep in the mix and brings back the first record's corroded textures, but it keeps things at a medium boil. The B-side plays a similar track to the A1, erupting into a heavy groove after an eight-bar intro, but here the energy is more ferocious, thanks to fierce hi-hats, a huge bassline and a simple acid hook. Ghost Miners is nothing fancy—just five no-bullshit club weapons, as dirty and raucous as they come.
