Norway's Stian Gjevik likes to travel below the radar, but his CN alias has been bouncing around proudly since 2011, delivering high quality IDM, electronica and electro for Brussel's utterly on-point WeMe Records. (In case you weren't aware, the imprint is home to some of the best and most expansive material from Detroit/Drexciyan legend DJ Stingray.) Gjevik is certainly in a Detroit mood with this new EP entitled Obscure Fragments, and "The Future Is You" is precisely the sort of high-powered electro gem that gets us going. "The Day Off At Outpost Gamma" is somewhat tamer in its energy, but the track is a beautifully wavy electro piece filled with mesmerising sounds; if you flip to the B-side you have a further three cuts of metallic pseudo techno, with our favourite being the gritty, cerebral future boogie of "Tefnut". Blade Runner vibes.
