Debut release on S27 from Russian artist Victor Piperov, better known as THKAD. This angular piece of work called [ROMB] is crystalline and surgical electronica, the sound of frozen landscapes on an alien planet. The beats are precise, the melodies spiky and some would say that it draws some parallels with a certain Warp Records duo but these tracks hold their own territory without trying to imitate. Closing the release is a stomping bonus remix from our very own Mitoma, who take "1 D xop" to the Industries and replace its heart with electronic components and a militaristic brain. A polished effort from THKAD and we look forward to hearing future experiments. Enjoy.
