Detroit Underground put out wildly variant musical styles on their label, from minimal to house, techno and electro - they certainly can't be genre pigeon-holed! This release comes from Swedish duo Kritical Audio and spans through the aforementioned genres and at moments even into dubstep, breaks and D&B territory. Moody, mind-tripping journeys are intricately created on Katacomb through eerie synths, deep glitchy 303 basslines and arresting electro rhythms. "Bugsmasher" rides electro punches and pounding 303s while the title track finds itself with a low slung, dubstep feeling. "Oceans 1300" meanwhile explores yet another route with emotive synths and tight percussion, while the spaced out atmospherics of "Taipei" round off an excellent 12".
