Singaporean producer Xhin handles the series' third release, four lengthy techno tracks that uncoil themselves into ghostly and transparent strands, shining brightly in a pitch black vacuum. Opener "Mind" is a series of thumping electronic charges that culminate in bursts of static; pulses of energy eventually split the track wide open, allowing a muscular beat to take over and the periodic noises to bleed through to all sectors. The entire EP is of a similar mind, but the minor variations prove captivating: The industrial, channel-hopping clank and clack of "Key" and its tunneling bass riffs as well as the ultra-slow sonar techno of "Seed" provide alternate takes on the EP's tingly charge.
Despite their length, these aren't just grinding tools. There's a definite point A to point B thing going on here. The sleek and stylish quality of these tracks is perhaps their downfall, as Xhin doesn't seem to have a distinctive sound nailed down quite yet—it's hard to say there's anything particularly "Xhin" about these four productions. But when he brings in those hi-hats halfway through "Mutate" only to gradually clip and reduce them into nothingness, I'm swooning regardless.
