Boomkat Product Review:
Rhythmic Theory smite the deadly first blow for Ancient Monarchy - a new sublabel administered by Berceuse Heroique. Holding his corner at the juncture of rude techno, D&B and darkside electronica, both tracks sustain the near-impeccable levels of his self-released singles and 12"s for Idle Hands, Happy Skull. 'Lucid State' surveys a ruff technoscape churning up ruggedest tribal drum patterns streaked with late '90s Bristolian D&B pads - think Krust, Dom & Roland, Decoder. On the other hand, 'Shores of Caladan' is one for the aerobic mystics, rolling out with hydraulik bass pressure under eccie-glow pads harking back to classic In Sync, Link, AFX; that '90s South West sound. Grade A: UK Techno.
