Mike Ash – Robotik [OZONLTD002]


Mike Ash pops up on the revitalised Ozone Recordings with an EP rich in authentically sparse, sub-heavy bleep & bass cuts of the sort that were all the rage in Yorkshire back in the day. A-side ‘Robotik’ is, in effect, a loving tribute to Man Machine’s 1990 single ‘Man Machine’ (the bassline and electronic motifs are very similar), with slightly more jacking drums. ‘Bleep Off Again’ continues in a similar vein, with Ash adding sparse, alien bleep melodies and fuzzy electronic stabs to another beefy bassline and skittish TR-909 beats, while ‘Sub Roll’ is a pleasingly intergalactic affair full of Rob Gordon style bass, dreamy ‘LFO’ pads and sparkling lead lines.
