A solid off-kilter house EP from Seth Troxler and Phil Moffa.
Troxler's love of extended, minimalist grooves and Moffa's fondness for hardware and intricate manipulation come together nicely on "Holes In The Holoverse," though there is sometimes too much going on—the choral pads, for example, feel unnecessary. "World Of The Wars" wisely keeps its busier sounds in the backdrop, where they creak, whirr and crackle behind a looping synth bassline. Moffa and Troxler tap the German artist Wolfgang Tillmans for his first official remix, which winds up being the EP's highlight. Tillmans' version of "World Of The Wars" is more spacious, adds a driving bassline and, best of all, has Tillmans muttering phrases such as "va va voom." It adds a touch of the unusual flavour Troxler and Moffa seem to be striving for.
