Schofield has a couple new tricks here—specifically, a textural touch that goes deeper than usual. Listen closely to the title track and you'll hear a quiet chewing in the background, like a termite with a contact mic. "Funnel" takes the intensity down to a languid 100 BPM, focusing on quirky sample work rather than the standard barrage of drums. It plods a bit at that tempo, though it's interesting to hear Schofield reach beyond pure intensity for something creepy and unsettling.
The EP's other three tracks—"Soak," "Insulation," "Radiator"—are only a few distortion modules away from straight-ahead electro. They'd sound right at home mixed alongside rough-and-tumble records from the likes of DJ Stingray or DJ Overdose—even with their abused edges and screaming feedback.
