The Wheel of Rituals – The Wheel of Rituals [V028]

I-F’s Viewlexx label is keeping tight-lipped about this rather fine EP. They’ve offered no details of the artist behind the project – or anything else for that matter – and their promotional spiel consists of one line in Latin. What we can tell you is that it’s a suitably dystopian affair, with the mystery producer launching with a chunk of industrial-tinged experimental electronica (the decidedly fuzzy “Initiation”), before joining the dots between Cabaret Voltaire and Drexciya on the decaying dancefloor electro pomp of “Flight From Reason”. Some will detect a nod towards Test Department on “Refuse Resist” and “Instrument of Power”. Elsewhere, there’s a looser and more alien feel to “Circle of Trust”, while closer “The Wheel of Rituals” is deliciously dark and hypnotic.
