The seventh installment in Lobster Theremin's Black Label series comes from frequent contributor Daze, who delivers another trio of tracks seemingly inspired by the dark potential of industrial-influenced lo-fi techno. "Longhorn" sets the tone, with distorted, almost chilling melodic hooks riding a clattering wave of drum machine beats and discordant, metallic hits. He celebrates the almost limitless potential of percussion on the gnarly, thrill-a-minute drum track "Tool", before expertly combining alien electronics, freakish acid lines and relentless rhythms on the delightfully out-there "Oil Rig". All three tracks are gritty, dark and unrelenting, and should appeal to those who pay close attention to the output of labels such as L.I.E.S and Berceuse Heroique.
