|1.||"The Peg Loosens" (5:27)|
Like Livity Sound boys Kowton and Peverlist, Paleman operates at the murky intersection of dark, otherworldly techno and next-level bass music. In the early days of career, his sound was more weighted towards the latter; in recent times, this has been reversed. That's certainly the case on this Zehnin outing, where the post-industrial late night creepiness of "Searching" is underpinned by a dense, rolling, tribal-influenced techno groove, and fellow A-side cut "2068" is as paranoid and clandestine as they come. Over on the B-side, first via the industrial-strength dancefloor hypnotism of "The Peg Loosens" and latterly by the looser and deeper "Slurp", Paleman continues to remind us that percussive intensity is his primary goal.
