||1.||"Swurlk" (Snarlfingercroak mix) (5:20)|
Last time we heard from Stian "EOD" Gjevik in December 2017, he was gathering together the best of his self-released material for a fine compilation on WeMe (the must-have EODS). Here, the sometime Rephlex artist delivers his first EP of unheard tracks since 2014. There's naturally much to admire, from the vintage IDM melodies, braindance acid lines and glistening analogue electronics of life-affirming opener "Swurlk (Snarlfingercroak Mix), to the full-throttle, warehouse-friendly techno-rave insanity of "Swarm". Elsewhere, he peppers a two-step influenced rhythm track with luscious chords and bubbly analogue bass on "ELCASET_TESTGROOVE" and offers a thrilling trip into classic braindance territory (the standout "Evenhark").
