Boomkat Product Review:
Another blast of greyscale techno minimalism from the Broken20 camp, this time the work of Mick Finesse. 'Concept Trauma' combines itchy Mille Plateaux-ish funk with the merest hint of breakbeat rollage, summoning Ilpo Vaisanen's brilliantly austere Liima versions from 2001. 'Mettle Debris' is a loose, lively take on thunderous Brum industrial techno, while 'The Ebb Of Crime' bridges stripped, sinuous, Ike Yard-ish electro and classy contemporary IDM. A strong supporting haul of remixes from Tengui, Cassegrain and label boss TVO bolster the package; the latter's second mix of 'Concept Trauma' is particularly notable, its pert, prismatic chord clusters sounding like the missing link between mid-90s C2 and Mark Fell's recent Sensate Focus gear.
