Boomkat Product Review:
Svengalisghost makes a 2nd appearance on L.I.E.S. with three cuts of industrialised acid house in the 'Vicious Circle' EP. Nudging the label to ever tuffer avenues, his 'A-side 'Hidden Cities' is a relentless and unforgiving techno groove riding pile-driving kicks with a maelstrom of acidic synth noise in heads down form. B-side, he takes his foot off the gas for a more psychedelic, atonal jackers descent called 'High Heel Sleaze' polishes you off with the jagged, rasping EBM rhythms and masticated acid of 'Judged By Machine'.
