Boomkat Product Review:
Exceptional slow techno deviations from Mike Jefford aka Positive Centre for Sigha's Our Circula Sound label. Maintaining the pressure below 110bpm, 'An Assembly' is a throttling set of six tracks compatible with a certain strain of techno that's emerged recently from producers such as Fishermen, CUB and Samuel Kerridge. Wide basses and precise, roiling percussions are rent with evil, sepulchral spatial dynamics: proper dungeon music for shadow lurkers and stony faced 7am techno goths. The molasses bass wade and shivering hi-hats of 'An Assembly' set the scene for dive-bombing drone synths and swaggering bass swing on the mighty 'Otherwise Black', and 'Thought & Intention' follows through with zombied, tribalistic momentum. The subbass swell of 'The Stations Of Section' is just immense, body swallowing warehouse music, and abyss-staring closer, 'Plumes Of Chasm' leaves us groaning for more.
