Turkish producer Gantz has been steadily earning his stripes on Black Box and Innamind, but now he makes a return to Deep Medi Musik with one of his most daring offerings to date. "Pseudooo" heads straight out into the kind of uncharted territory you might expect to find Ras G and Afrikan Sciences chilling in, without sounding quite like either of those artists. The title track meanwhile heads into a more low slung hip hop refrain that bleeds wonderfully around the edges, while Rider Shafique lends his dextrous flows to "Rockstar" with sizzling results. "Supreme A" rounds the EP off with a more introspective mood built around delicate string hits looping with erratic abandon.
Having appeared on Black Bakery's debut release, Gilus returns with three more leftfield visions of the future. "Dazed Vision" is very reminiscent of Nathan Fake thanks to its lush, enveloping use of distortion on the euphoric melodic hook. "Fantasia" takes the ideas and ingredients of classic electro and makes them infinitely more interesting and immersive thanks to his great use of textures and narrative twists. "Distorted", meanwhile, lives up to its name with a Vitalic-style stomp-out that was clearly designed with the darkest, dirtiest, most illicit warehouse parties in mind. Nasty.
