This second transmission from Kyoto-based 10 Label proves to be every bit as compelling and finely curated as last year's inaugural release which brought the talents of French sound artist Anne-James Chaton to the attention of the Juno review squad, as well as featuring contributions from Ancient Methods, Sawlin and label heads Steven Porter. The latter pairing of Katsunori Sawa and Yuji Kondo feature once more, here surrounded by a high quality cast of acts in Perc, Matthew Herbert and Dalhous. Unreleased material is the theme of the day on the Replay EP, with Ali Wells in quite straightforward mood on "Overbite" which is characterised by the Chewbacca-esque snarl of static that ripples over an insistent stepping rhythm. The frosted "Subject Of The Stenographic Figure" finds Dalhous in typically poised and atmospheric mood, whilst conversely, Matthew Herbert has put aside his usual socio-political intentions on "Tax Returns" which is the producer at his most floor-friendly and lopsided. Finally, Steven Porter trudge through sludgy sample heavy instrumental hip-hop on "Fundamental Belief".
