Boomkat Product Review:
Stellar 2nd album of Detroit techno sci-fi from Terrence Dixon's Population One avatar. Arriving a mere 20 years since his Population One debut, 'Unknown Black Shapes' - whose 1995 follow-up EP, 'Hippnotic Culture' coincidentally inspired Rush Hour's moniker - we're made privy to Dixon's most intimate, noirish portrayal of a 313 psyche in eight tracks traversing hi-tech jazz and cryptic electro along mesmerising minimalist patterns. It's a proper Afro-futurist document, taking flight from desolate 313 interzones with the introspective opener 'Out Of Control'. propelled via the morse rhythmelody of 'Code Urgent' and coiled double bass-lines in 'For Only You' to soar over the blinking electro grids of 'Battle For Space' from aerial angles. The sense of Population One mapping out a sonic psychogeography for Detroit is crucial to the narrative, continuing thru the playful yet menacing techno of 'Inner City Circus' and the moodily driven motor city resolve of 'All Together', whilst 'My Own Shadow' delivers a deft dose of raving paranoia before leaving us stranded in the alien midnight techno roil of 'All Of A Sudden'. In light of the fact Mr. Dixon announced his retirement from making music earlier this year (let's just hope he was doing a Wiley) this album could well stand as one of his finest recorded achievements, bar none.
