Following in the footsteps of fellow Russians Bop and Enei, Abstract Elements get freaky on a deep and minimal tip with an EP that gets heavier track by track. We kick off with the eerie muffled pastures of the lead track "Fourth Dimension", a cut so sub-heavy it broke two Juno speakers when we tested it in the office. "Apocalypse" drives deeper into tech territories with precise kicks, spine-shuddering atmospherics and a percussive hook that develops with stealth. "Vortex Field" finishes the set with paranoid urgency. Filmic, dramatic and mechanically funky, it's the perfect EP finale.
