Boomkat Product Review:
Killer incision from one of 2014's most intriguing new labels, kicking off 2015 with a typically obfuscated, technoid enigma from another new name, Xth Réflexion. Coming off like a lo-fi Autechre meets Chain Reaction, '/\\05' deals in fractured steppers momentum and abstract dub structures, sucking us in with the flux of acousmatic source material, strobing dub rhythms and coruscating noise in '01' before winding up the tightly coiled, double-time flex of highlight, '02'. Deeper in, '03' fires a lip-bitingly ace round of skittish steppers drums reminding of that Skee Mask 12" trapped in a hall of mirrors, and '04' settles down to a tantalising dub noise detachment redolent of classic Vainqueur and Fluxion.
