Review: Given the broad spectrum of Hotflush's output, it's easy to forget Sigha's place on the label's roster, given that his concise productions have always been far more aligned with the concrete Berghain sound than the colourful palette of his labelmates. However, there's a warmth present in his sound that makes his place on the label appropriate, especially on this superb EP. "Something In Between Us" opens with an ambient flourish of warm chords - it's a stark contrast to "Where I Come To Forget" with its solid kick drum and dry percussion, but there's something about Sigha's production that coats everything in a subtle heat, free of the mechanical feel of some of his German peers. "How To Disappear" provides further warmth - rather than cold, hard edges, its hypnotic arpeggio ripples invite you in like a warm spring. Even though "Drown" which follows is a fairly bleak finish with only subtle clicks to carry it forward, it nevertheless envelops you in a blanket of crackly sonics. Highly recommended.

Review: The continual progression of London's Sigha into a producer of real pedigree is charted via his fifth release for Hotflush, introducing four cuts shorn of titular ingenuity with the focus squarely on the cavernous end of the techno spectrum. Fans of the recent Skudge album should definitely cast their senses over the tracks presented here which more than justify the attention the likes of Dettmann, Klock and Ruskin have been showing towards Sigha productions of late. The first track is the big one with tightly coiled acid textures wrapped around a relentless rattle of machine funk intensity and sets the tone for what follows with "A2", a similarly highly pressurised concoction of hypnotic bleeps and subaqueous drum hits. Special mention to the final descent into smudged out beatless industrial menace which highlights Sigha's versatility.
