When he made his debut on Nous Disques last year, there was much discussion about whether O Xander - AKA DJ Rei Ayanami - was actually from Antarctica, as his sparse Soundcloud profile claimed. Either way, he's decided to roll with the theme on this fine follow-up, From Antarctica With Love. The EP's five tracks variously touch on icy electro ("Snowspeeder Blues"), windswept acid ("Thru Our Veins"), glacial electronica ("A Perfect Balance"), and clanking, mechanical techno (the deep but metallic "Full Spectrum"). The latter track is also featured in Juniper Dub form, with the Smallville and meandyou duo excelling at combining cut-up melody snippets with rolling, drum machine rhythms.
