Review

Lucretio of the Analogue Cops has a work rate comparable to that of a trolling internet gamer. Fortunately for us, Lucretio is not lost in a world of Warcraft, but a studio of drum machines, synthesisers and dusty samplers. It's hard to keep track of who is who in the Italian realm of beat-down house, with the flurry of aliases circulating the Appointment and Restoration camps, but Lucretio makes himself known with the five track Competing Motivations - his first eponymously credited work away from the Machine States label. Lucretio adorns the A-side with his trademark slamming drums, ear-shatter claps and filter melodies with the tracks "Want" and "Tell Me", the latter sounding like a frenetic '90s Laurent Garnier production pitched way down. The B-side's "The Great Fire" and "Quash" are slowed to hip hop tempos, given staggered and lazy beat design which sees improvisation butt up against the edges of awkward but enjoyable musicality. The repetitious "Not The Music" is remit of melodiousness, but a bi-product from a looped sample somehow becomes the tracks focal point
