The duo's last two solo records illustrate where We Move As One is coming from. In 2014, the DEMENT3D chief's Suspended In A Stasis Field was an especially driving EP for the label, with a deep sense of spatial awareness. Antigone's first outing for Token, 2015's Cantor Dust, was particularly detailed. We Move As One's more functional tracks, like "Love Trade" and "The Hates SZ," seem to be rooted in that record.
But the delight of this EP is when the producers step outside of their club-ready ideas. Take "Living Doll": knocking about on its subdued yet groovy beat, it's in no hurry to go anywhere. The design of "The Sorcerer" is crystalline until it expels noise like marbles scattering on glass. "We Move As One" closes with a gush of sweet synths through atmospheric storm clouds, and opener "Pagan Woman" is an ominous and droning ride. There's plenty of gung-ho action in between, of course, but We Move As One's standout moments are meant for engaged and attentive ears.
