Boomkat Product Review:
**Tensile, shadowy synth-pop by Brooklyn-based duo, includes strong highlight in 'Contour Lines'**
"Through word of mouth, the band has built up an international fan base in the past few years. Interest has come largely from appearances on seminal European compilations such as the TSM series produced by The Scrap Mag (Spain) and Until the Sun Grows Cold from Vocoder Tapes (England). Spatial Relation's cassette EP Thoughtcrime also was released last year by Infravox Records (Peru), and this was preceded by a split seven-inch single with the artist Xiu on Peripheral Minimal in 2013. The eight songs that make up Beyond the Zero were produced, recorded, and mixed in the band's home studio from 2012 to 2014. In addition to new titles such as the stand-out singles Tacit Knowledge and Phantoms of the Future, the album includes the cult hit Contour Lines, which helped launch Spatial Relation to public attention, and closes with the minimalist favorite Mysteries of Chance. All tracks have been mastered with care by the famed Dutch producer and engineer Alden Tyrell. With influences ranging from 1980s minimal synth to Skam-styled IDM, Spatial Relation's music draws equally from the early pop work of Depeche Mode and the later electro sounds of Dopplereffekt. Emphasizing hard beats, thick basslines, and hypnotic arpeggios, the minimalist arrangements onBeyond the Zero are geared for maximum effect. Created with a carefully chosen selection of analog electronic instruments, the album pairs the overtly synthetic sounds of hardware with human vocal experimentation."
