This is Skills' eighth release on Adam Beyer's label and it shows that the Dutch producer has developed a lot as a producer. Skills covers a lot of ground on this four-tracker, but the listener is never left with the sense that he has spread himself too thinly. The title track is a detuned, rolling affair, while "Fifth Gear" sees him adopt a straighter approach with its acid tones and tough, loopy rhythm. "Starfighter" takes its cues from the Sandwell school of techno and sees doubled up claps support subsonic bleeps. As a final salvo, there's "Rising Sun", where Skills draws on the legacy of Sterac for a deep but driving Detroit-style affair.
