Steve Murphy's curiously long shadow casts itself ever further over the realms of gritty house and techno with a barn-storming follow up on the Lobster Theremin core series, this time ratcheting up the tempo and rhythm to epic levels. Shed-esque kicks thunder over asteroid-crumbling basslines, crackling wooden percussion is slammed into the muggy dirt and leaves, seriously filthy, rolling numbers for the all night crew.
'UK Treatment' kicks and thumps in all the right places, with a stuttering synth stab loop and vocals giving it some serious peak time currency. Spleen is all sludgy, skittering MPC business, while 'Rules' goes off-key Chicago and 'Total Recall 2084' swims around, pestered in the mud until a lonely, droning piano key scares away the flanged swarm of wasps and noise.
