Naif steps up with an interesting split disc that spans the new and the old, as L.I.E.S and Argot bright spark Gunnar Haslam takes over the A side with the fulsome bubble of "Overcomplete" while Roman Flugel's long-standing Acid Jesus alias gets a little reissue treatment with the abrasive percussion workout of "Radium". The former is undoubtedly the friendlier, darewesay delineated offering, as a tidy 303 line and steady drum machine sizzle work into a trusty formation for the floor. Flugel's effort is of course a more fringe effort that makes dubby effects processing sound like the devils work, and is all the more distinctive for it.
