This electro EP is slower than most, but no less powerful.
The electrifying "Zone Shifting" puts it all together perfectly with atypical seven-bar phrasing that features wordless vocals and a zig-zagging, acidic bass riff. The next two cuts show off Washington's penchant for trippy vocoder vocals. On "Vertexing," emotional, octave-jumping "verses" emerge from a labyrinthine soundscape. The vocoder is in full effect on the title cut, its breezy vocal lines tied to vibrant synth figures in sequences that mix mellow up-and-down movements with key changes. The techno-tinged "Astronoot" draws on vocal elements similar to "Zone Shifting," but sticks to a lower gear to wind things down. Among the finest electro 12-inches to land in recent months, Ne0 Ge0 adds to an impressive discography from Washington.
