Tales From The Blobe EP – review by Nexus6 (atome)
They (Sum1 and Sum1else) come from an island where nobody joke with the Bass! Last recruits on Satamile label, the Middle Men deliver here for their very first appearance a three tracks EP highly corrosive, forged in the 808. On A side, “We Cannot Be Destroyed” introduces a powerful robotic rhythm, fully equipped with few futuristic keys, wrongfully retro electro strings and atmospheric vocoder. Strongly dancefloor like the scratches in middle of the cut! On the reverse, “Blob Knocker” and “Kraftwerk Orange” present two superb melodic compositions with old school sonorities borrowed from Dopplereffekt and Kraftwerk. A 12” sometimes industrial, often funky and constantly vigorous! Essential.
