Alexander Neumann has been making dark and disjointed techno under the name of Alex Cortex for almost twenty years now. He has been part of everything from the late dub-techno wave, to the minimal takeover and now the 'outsider' scene, but the artist has always managed to retain his singularity and never get too attached to any one style of fad. He's up on Austria's Trust label for their 26th outing, coming through with the bubbly, grey-scale electro-techno of "We Run Your Life" on the A-side, followed by the minimalistic jitter-beat that is "Foam Rubber Landscaping", and the glitchy bric-a-brac beat of "Memory Overload". All things considered, this dude knows how to bend dance music to its very limits.
