Communicat 1022 goes further. The ideas are stronger and the sounds even odder. Listening to the A-side's boing-y synth lines, it's difficult not to think of didgeridoos. On "Say What You Want To Say" they're squished between drums that seem to have been put through one time-stretch too many. On the aptly titled "Rubber Industry," the bassline flexes and bends, as if it's been left too close to a radiator. In the track's latter half, a couple of high tones breathe some chilly air into the hot, stuffy space.
The EP's other side is a shade straighter. "Lit Up Communicat" is the slow-burner, its ghoulish metal clanks and sulky chords gaining potency on repeat listens. "Marga" is the peak-time number. The apocalyptic rumble of drums is relatively stable, and the molten synths cascading over it are familiar from a dozen big-room techno records—and yet, in some way that you can't put your finger on, they've never sounded quite like this.
