"Da Heckler," the obvious standout, quickly outlines why Martyn's label picked up Spectrums. This heavy hybrid jumps, punches and sways like some of the Dutchman's best bass-loaded grooves, and has a dubwise tint akin to Great Lengths. Yet it doesn't paint Koefod as a copycat, instead expanding the vibrant eclecticism future Erosion Flow records could encompass.
"Gamma" also has a meaty thump, but plays things too straight and narrow. Not even the jittery 303 sequence can enliven the flat 4/4. Lone B-side "Emeralds" does better with a basic rhythm, tying percussive whacks, sidewinding synth notes and atmospheric glitter onto its steady pulse. There are certainly worse ways to spend five and a half minutes on the dance floor, but this one's unlikely to leave the kind of impression "Da Heckler" does.
