ASC – Eccentric Orbits [SSX010]

ASC are a perfect fit for Silent Season, favouring as they do greyscale melodic content and a cerebral approach to mutant techno. “Cerulean” is a fine opening gambit on this 12″, all crooked kick patterns and micro bleeps calling out into nothing, while “Dimension 1010” maintains the austere approach with a slow swell of melancholic ambience over a meditative rhythm. “Enchanted” is no less restrained, but there’s a subtle shard of light in the murmuring pad that lingers in the background. That’s well and truly dealt with on the bleak beatdown “Molniya”, which pings bleakest techno into a black hole of sound, which is of course a wonderful thing to behold.
