Continuing a sterling run of form of late, Steven Tang's OMT moniker has been testing the fringes of classically rooted house and techno with a style that comes on somewhat malevolent without ever needing to resort to aggression. Indeed the original mix of "Since The Accident" is overtly creepy with its atonal acid lines and horror film strings, but the beats fall with a clean precision and there's not a touch of overdrive or unnecessary volume in sight. The bonus beats allow further clarity on this idea as well, while Specter's mix seems intent on opiating the entire jam into a mellifluous blur of strangeness. "Descending" is less uneasy in its demeanour, but still occupies an otherworldly space thus making it a worthy addition to the EP.
