Making his first appearance on Marc Romboy's Systematic imprint, Dicken 'OCH' Lean throws down some ineffably weighty dub techno that does well to avoid the horizontal trappings of the genre and instead keeps the energy up with a rugged rhythmic structure out in front. The dubby textures themselves on "Work Da Groove" and "Destroying Angle" are also tweaked for greater impact, dressed like industrial ghosts just as they move like German dancers. The latter is the more militant of the two, while "Work Da Groove" makes the most of a warm lead synth line to shed some light on the situation.
