Italian techno legend Lory D returns to Scotland's Numbers for the second instalment of the Strange Days series. Acid is the word here, and "B-I-132" sees Lory inject his jacked-out techno trademark over a nasty, shuffling beat that builds pace and energy right up to its end. On the B-Side, "Acidattak" mutates the 303 further still and creates a cluster bomb reminiscent of his old-school warehouse days. "Ostia Girl" takes things to more experimental territories, where chopped up female vocals are displaced over broken beats and irregular percussions. It's a pleasure to see one of techno's unsung heroes both following tradition and creating something fresh and mesmerising.
