Boomkat Product Review:
1st new Bitstream 12” in 10 years! The bothers Conner remerge one of the UK’s most cherished electro projects for a strong 4-track EP with the West Coast Dutch G’s at Frustrated Funk
Since their last 12”, ‘The Severed EP’  for Touchin’ Bass, Dave and Steve Connor bifurcated into the Uexkull and Adapta projects, respectively. While they’ve turned out some solid gear individually, their powers are arguably felt strongest when working together, as on the ‘Switch Halo’ EP.
In combo, they massively impress with the dissonant, bittersweet choral synth voices that open up ‘Stream Philter’ and infiltrate its slow, pendulous groove, while the richly detailed and rapid ‘Screens’ also benefits from more hands on deck in its sumptuous kneeing soundsphere. Again those synth voices make a crucial appearance, haunting the elastic, shapeshifting slosh of ‘Tactic’, while ‘Switch Holo’ works with powerful techno-electro hydraulics in a super tight update of their signature styles.
