Boomkat Product Review:
Mike Paradinas sticks his butterfly net back in the murky space between Ekoplekz' ears for a diverse follow-up to 'Unfidelity'. Spawned from the same sessions at its predecessor, 'Four Track Mind' is not so much the offcuts, as the bits that were too dark, detached, for the psychedelic swirl of 'Unfidelity'. There's eleven of 'em, making for one of Nick Edwards' moodiest collections, all hingeing on silty rhythmic currents filter-clogged traces of melody fanning out from the Skaters meets Goblin on 'Ariel Grey' to faded Wolgang Voigt styles of 'Interstice' and 'Death Watch', thru the Radiophonic soup of 'D'Vectif' and the keening echo chamber ambience of 'Return To The Annex'. Captured and pinned to tape, they arguably amount to his most im/pure and coolly disciplined vision of micro-modular dystopia.
