Boomkat Product Review:
Already causing quite a bit of a stir with followers of the Planet Mu label and Venetian Snares in particular, this excellent debut album from End delivers an excellent assembly of intricate electronic work with a harrowing edge. 'Eclipse of Reason' employs orchestral strings that are instantly reminiscent of Autechre's beautifully constructed 'Amber', while the beats are of a tougher, more cut-up nature. 'The Image Economy' toughens proceedings up with an immense quasi-electroid shuffle, sped up and broken apart by static and the eventual erruption of a splintered amen break - genius. 'The Culture Industry', meanwhile, uproots a crushed hip hop beat and laces it with a spannered piece of detuned engineering - deep, resourceful, original, squashed largeness assured. 12 tracks, future electronic devastation, essential listening. Killer.
