Mønic - Four Sides Of Truth EP
After deeply cherished UK dubstep act Kryptic Minds has split, Simon Shreeve, former half of it, has reincarnated as IDM/techno producer Mønic. He has since been releasing on his own former drum-&-bass-and-dubstep-turned-into-IDM imprint Osiris Music UK, Regis' Downwards, as well as Tresór Records - this is his second appearance on it after a 2015 extended player titled Parsons Hill, but this time he brought in his associate Kamikaze Space Programme to do a remix of Morse - track that was released earlier on abovementioned EP.
Right off the bat - richly detailed pieces that make this release are nothing short of an achievement by a skilled sound designer. Decades of Shreeve's production experience really reveal themselves on Four Sides Of Truth, in fact this might be his best work since he quit dubstep. Not so much for the dancefloor annihilation but rather for personal, home-setting-enhanced-by-headset type of enjoyment (although some parts might very effectively be used for opening of a set), this masterfully crafted, syncopation-laden blend of deep techno is a truly unique sonic experience to earwitness. Kamikaze Space Programme's input is just as much appreciated if you prefer your electronics with a pinch of industrial sampling. Highly recommended for fans of Edit Select and D/O/22.
