It's been two years since Richard Sen last treated us to some new music, so this surprise EP - his first for Kim-Ann Foxman's Firehouse label - is well overdue. In its original form, "Flow Master" sits somewhere between new wave-inspired Italo-disco, early Chicago house and the chant-along EBM funk of Nitzer Ebb. It's blessed with a particularly memorable sequenced bassline that naturally comes to the fore at key moments in the track. Foxman delivers a superb, acid-fired remix that's noticeably darker, wilder and closer in tone to '88 style EBM, before Sen peppers a cowbell-heavy drum machine groove with stabbing sub-bass and ice cream van chimes (really) on similarly meaty flipside "Bad Meaning Good".
