Deep, hypnotic techno.
The title track could be a less chaotic version of Svreca's "Mountain Splitter," a 2015 brain-melter built for the heady dance floors. Linell's sound is more subdued, laying what could be synth feedback between scattershot percussion. "Vision Of The Imminence" also sounds familiar, as though it's channeling Dominick Fernow's doom chords—"You Show Great Spirit," "Enter Paradise"—into deep techno. (Even the title could be one of Fernow's.) "Scattered Across" and "Therme" feel less referential. Both are functional techno tunes with a strong sense of groove, the kind of tracks DJs could pull out just about anytime. Sculpting Energy is a quality EP, but it shows that Linell is at his most original when working outside the techno framework.
