More potent bodyjackers arrive with the recognisable LIES stamp thanks to the smart curatorial eyes of label overseer Ronald Morelli. There's a nice story to this release too - it marks the culmination of a five year plan to release material from Svengalighost after Morelli was introduced to his undeniably dystopian techno as his previous Below Underground incarnation via the NYC legend Pork Chop. Now reborn as Svengalighost, the three tracks here are culled from those archival sessions Morelli was so impressed by, with "Deep Into Memory" a suitably epic opener. Creeping up from the murkiest recesses of machine funk, Svengalighost gradually fills your dome piece with relentless elasticised analogue patterns flushed with increasingly ominous intensity. "Long Live Real Chicago Jack" reads the B side run out groove inscription and there is further evidence that is breathes with gleeful energy on LIES with the crystalline tautness of "Mars Out Of Range" and the abrasive Dance Mania from outer space pressure of "Marathon".
