Bristol-based Kieran "Komon" Lomax and Laurie "Appleblim" Osborne deliver an impressive follow-up to the recent Jupiter EP, their first collaborative release. Like its predecessor, Motion Blur features a range of angular, off-kilter tracks that fuse their techno and deep house sensibilities with a range of bass music influences. The title track sounds like classic US garage given the loose two-step treatment, while the more atmospheric but no less rubbery "Key Vision" douses smooth textures in acid-flecked electronics and bubbling, horror-influenced chords. The EP is completed by two solo tracks. Lomax's "Astir" is woozy, melancholic and built around decidedly live-sounding drums. Osborne takes a different but no less intoxicating path on "Echo's Retreat", which is a heady chunk of otherworldly techno in his distinctive style.
