High-energy acid for Modeselektor's label.
They've also invited back Marcel Dettmann, who contributed a nice edit of a track called "Sbinson." His edit of "Globe" here isn't quite as good. It's heavily loop-based, like its predecessor, but it merely ghosts by in a vaguely unsettling five minutes. However, the Lory D tracks are stronger this time. You always know you'll get variations on a deranged, high-energy acid sound from the veteran Italian artist, but the breadth of the tracks this time is especially pleasing. "Mantrosax 2" is one of those clinging-to-the-edge-of-sanity acid bangers that Lory D often nails. From the first beat to the last, the 303 runs rampant, with just enough space for a melodic loop in the background to further fuel the sense of trouble. The other two tracks are geared for club damage, but through different means. "Bass And The City," unsurprisingly, pivots on an enormous bassline, while "Mazesku" has a cascading bundle of arpeggiated synths that show a lesser-seen lighter side of Lory D.
