This is the second full Fear-E release on Dixon Avenue Basement Jams and brilliantly recalls the glory days of Detroit techno and Chicago house. "Back to Basics" revolves around a jacking rhythm and a predatory bass that support a sweaty vocal. It's a classy basement track. On "What Ya Gonna", the tempo moves up a few notches as steely percussion and minimal beats accompany a lo-fi bleep sequence and eerie rave stabs, while "Band of Rubber" is a noisy, muddy groove. None of them can compare to "Sunrize in Avalon" however, which sees Fear-E appropriate the kind of liquid acid-soaked deep techno that Nu Era used to specialise in.
