While he may have been active since the mid '00s, it's only in the last couple of years that Dax J has started to truly fly out the releases, and after successful stints on Deeply Rooted and others, the London-based artist is back on his own EarToGround imprint with an EP of dark, electro-fied techno. "Corinthians" matches rousing choral pads with dark clanging chimes to make for a dynamic and engaging romp, while "Blade Runner" gets into a more unstable mindset with a piercing arpeggio and a light spread of drums. "Tunnels" is a markedly feistier tune, while Emmanuel's remix channels the growling synth tones into a more metallic, sleek kind of techno workout.
