Those still coming to terms with the dense, morose nature of the recent Actress album will be pleasantly surprised by the contrast provided by his label's latest signing. Giganta's Werkdiscs debut is full of brightly lit musical textures and twisting rhythmical complexity. It's little surprise to hear that Giganta, the production alias of Athens-based Eleni Adamopoulou, also counts sound design on her list of talents with the four tracks here presented as "her fight against the negativity and violence that has surrounded her in her city since 2008." The former RBMA graduate makes very smart usage of processed vocals (perhaps her own) on lead track "Can't Stop Playing" with the element a crucial aspect of the rhythmic momentum rather than accompaniment, whilst "Spot Scene" and "Force" will appeal to Luckyme advocates.
