Heterocetera is a confrontational EP. Opener "Suspension" is laced with antagonistic tones, as if in listening to it you've triggered an intruder alarm. The title track turns the infamous Masters At Work "ha!" (a ballroom staple) into a cloud that hovers over hissing gaskets and turning gears, while the rat-at-at attack of "Phlegm" is just as erratic. "Slay" and "Underneath," both of which bring to mind fellow Tri Angle newbie Rabit in their use of blank space and reverb, offer a zero-gravity respite, though they're still crunchy and foreboding.
"As a DJ, I want people to dance, but I also want them to be a little bit unsure of what's going on most of the time," Morgan told RA in a recent feature. Judging from Heterocetera, that goes for his productions, too. Over its 20 minutes, the EP pushes dance music through violent twists and turns until it becomes disorienting and startling.
