Boomkat Product Review:
Amit's sophomore album is a wide-ranging, deeply layered affair including a number of vocal contributions from Ursula Rani Sarma amidst his trademark halfstep D&B, darker Electro, and Techy rollers.
Rani's vocals beautifully flavour opener 'Lullaby For "Yerma"', setting a classically noirish tone for the duration. The low-slung droning atmospheres of 'Pripyat' and '68000' start the dance proper with shades of Scorn's blistered style amped for the 'floor, while the cinematic 'Atonal' has shades of Shackleton's drum cadences tucked under more experimental keys and Hermann-esque strings before diverting into strongback electro on 'RBMK 1000'. There's a genuine surprise to be found in the Joy Division-spiked Dread dub of 'Bloxit' and the industrial bassline of 'Social Dilemna', while displaying an impressive grasp of ambient cinematics on 'Dream Sequence'. The steppers should be warming up for the likes of '9 Times' or the wormhole twyst of 'Slug' (both featured on the 12" single) while the bonus tracks covers a diverse range of acidic steppers, grungy cyber-dub and droning basses.
