In its original form, Stingray's "Null Physics" is a slamming peak-time techno track, its monstrous surging chords underpinned by an evil bass and surrounded by a cloud of crackling electronic noise. Cortex' approach is more muted; while it contains the kind of busy, splintered breaks that some of his work is known for, in this instance, the arrangement hinges on a dubby, ominous rhythm.
On the flip, the German producer tries to outdo "Physics," with Cortex dropping a rolling rhythm that leads to epic chord builds and the kind of jarring, noisy riffs that would put Autechre to shame. Stingray uses similar tactics on his remix, with claustrophobically dense beats and a series of builds that simulate the nauseating feeling that kicks in when a plane hits pockets of turbulence. As finales go, it doesn't get more sickeningly brilliant than this.
