Boomkat Product Review:
**180g wax. Edition of 300* SLO continues to forge a personalised, proggy fusion of Bass-heavy techno and D&B rolige on the 2nd release from his Aery Metals label. Like some modern magpie with an ear for the most sensuous, affective bits of UK dance music, SLO borrows and bends traces of many styles into a sleek, supple style hovering around the 125bpm mark. A-side, the darkyl sexy 'Dead Cell' rides a swinging, kinky groove anchored by cone-blowing subbass and haunted by atmospheres somewhere between classic Metalheadz and early Tectonic pieces, especially the latter when that woozy accordion line slips out of place. B-side, 'Portal II (Girls Talk About Acid)' goes all aquatic, awash with melting dub chords, diva vocal and splashing acid punctuated by pointillist percussion. Recommended!
