The Borg EP – Review by Sean Cooper

The debut release on Intelligence’s electro subsidiary Panic Trax is from Phil Klein’s Cybernet Systems project, with the title track a collaboration with no less a first-wave electro/bass legend than Dynamix II (previous Klein tracks have appeared on compilations on the latter’s Miami-based label). Hardly a memory-lane rehash of “Just Give the DJ a Break,” however, “The Borg” is one of the more futuristic articulations of electro-funk in the digital age yet to appear. All time-stretched snares and bouncing, melodic detuned kicks, this four-tracker is top-to-bottom quality.
