"Arlington CT9" centres on a swooning, grimey melody, around which the beat operates mostly as punctuation. "She Giv"'s intricate bell-tone hook is almost like Four Tet—although, while Wen has toned down the drums, his sub-bass is suffocating as ever. "Lunar Tide Cycle" might be the best of the lot, its warped bassline weaving slickly around sparse percussion. Wen never releases the track's coiled energy, and this tension makes it all the more compelling.
Only the final two productions move closer to conventional Wen, and they come as a welcome change of pace by then. "Switch" is closest to the Wen of old, and its gaunt UK funky syncopations are proficiently executed, though probably the least enticing thing here. "Gravity Flux" makes good on its title: free-floating bass stabs and whipcrack snares form strange shapes in the air.
