Boomkat Product Review:
“Cyriak Parasol” is a classic exercise in crunched-up, squashed and damnright mangled electronic construction that sticks to an IDM agenda but with an execution of sound that has obviously been painstakingly honed. The opening “A Fraction Of Crouching” delivers with much metalic force, a squashed rhythm deploying itself like a rabid b-boy, warm tones offsetting the pace as the track progresses with a widescreen approach to space. Ace. “See 14 Across” starts off with the kind of computerised lullaby that Rephlex operator Bochum Welt became so well know for, lilting playful melodies and a regulated jackhammer rhythm chugging along with wires dangling out trying to out-manouver it’s malfunctions – heartwarming, classic stuff. “Garn Boy” is much more temperamental, ignited by an angry acid mutation and distorted percussive churns, the squelches sooner or later bump into some twinkling keys and cathartic melodies for company – exactly the sort of shit that we love. In all, 7 tracks, 32 minutes long, rough-ass business.
