Ensuring Werk Discs stays at the forefront of modernist electro variations, Giganta serves up a fast-paced thrill ride of squelchy synth work and clean machine beats. "Spot Scene" snaps and cracks with purple chord stabs and jacking drums, before "Force" wriggles into a jerky groove with some jazzy nuances in the melodic content. "This Goes On" is a touch more technoid in its delivery, keeping the elements to a minimum whilst still conjuring up a palatable mutant atmosphere. That leaves it to "This Is Ma Beat" to up the ante in unhinged production with wonky tones aplenty and some bold sampling for the freakier end of the night.

Emerging Manchester player GS One takes off with his debut EP. Boasting three originals, each one flexes a different groove muscle: "Pillow Talk" rolls with a woozy flow, all bendy synths and a heavy LA flavour. "I Was Just Thinking", meanwhile, proves GS One's might as a producer as he lays down a jazz-tinged slice of contemporary soul that's slim-but-strong enough to carry the dominant lyrical lashings of Fallacy and Tyler Daley. For added sonic scope "Hold Me Close" takes the classic Detroit synth sound and dreamy synths for a solid upbeat 4/4 finale. Complete with a bold and bashy T Vicious remix of "Hold Me Close", this is a highly accomplished debut.
