Four Sides Of Truth is Shreeve's second Tresor release as Mønic, after last year's Parsons Hill EP. With thorny thickets of industrialized percussion and a huge sub-bass hum overtaking urgent bleeps and pensive pads, the title track is hectic but murky, perhaps to a fault. "Point To The Sun" is a wonderfully restrained cut of ambient-tinged techno, its resonant bass tones and light percussive rushes topped by slow waves of minor-key synths. Too bad it's only three minutes long.
"Self Doubt Is Worthless" is the most direct original cut here, and the strongest for it. In the track's interplay between a huge metallic rattle and thick, meandering melodies it has a sort of carefully sculpted grandiosity like Polar Inertia or Kangding Ray. A remix comes from Kamikaze Space Programme, AKA Bristol-based Chris Jarman, who recently released on Osiris Music UK. Recruited to take on Parsons Hill's yawning "Morse," he tightens (and funks up) the drums, adding a ton of clattering, echoing ambiance. It's a deep, crispy finish to a decent, if unspectacular, release.
