Well known for his 4/4 minimal experiments since 1993 on such structures like Treibstoff, Sub Static, Morris Audio or even Chalant, Eric Estornell aka Maetrik came lately to electro. Author of a remarkable "My Cyborg Depths LP" published early in 2006 on Daz Quayle's respected SCSI-AV, US artist on his other Mariel Ito alter ego appears today as one of the most influential current producers in a matter of syncopated music. Eighteenth signature on Jay Pearce and Damo Foster's UK imprint, the man with multiple faces delivers four synthetic cuts of superior quality. If "Hometown Destructor" and "24 Hours" turn into a ultra dancefloor techno, ideal to play along with Justin Maxwell's hypnotic productions on Palette, forward thinking "Complexes" and "Warped" offer two magnificent electro variations combining sharped beats, evolving melodies, futuristic sounds, deep strings and stunning vocoder. An aesthetic anticipated 12'', truly complete, innovative and impossible to miss. Congratulations!
