The third Diskotopia release of 2013 comes transmitted from somewhere out in deep space, courtesy of label mainstay, RBMA alumni & Tender Hooks co-founder Mau'lin. Building on from last year's excellently received Function Open EP, Mau'lin continues his exploration of ruff and rugged polyrhythmic techno abstractions in fine style. The four original tracks which comprise the Quotient EP, plus a stunning Boxwork remix,are Mau'lin's strongest and most visceral tracks to date.
Already having gained support from Numbers bosses Jackmaster and Spencer with plays on Rinse FM & BBC Radio 1, Quotient wastes no time to kick things off properly. A bent and skewed, portamento-twisted barrage of android percussion collides like bursting atoms with jackin' drums while an otherworldly wash of synth blankets the surrounding frenzy.
The galactic funk of From Form is an undeniable testament to the strength Mau'lin's vision of interstellar production techniques. Heads-down vibes in the darkest corners of the universe is the name of the game here. Pulsing and filtered bass, swirling leads, concurrent waves of drums and an underlying momentum that's impossible not to get lost in.
Arriver takes the proceedings deeper with a distorted and determined wormhole-coasting lead guiding through uncharted territories. Lost-in-space diva chants haunt as unwavering 4x4 drums ensure a clear path through the unknown.
Fresh from his LNUK debut EP in February, London's Boxwork re-works From Form into a warehouse techno excursion, smashing cavernous drums and bold synth cuts together with wild momentum.
