Nina Kraviz' label takes a trawl through Thule founder and deceased producer Sigurbjorn Porgrimsson's archive of unreleased material to deliver an album that could only be described as schizophrenic. Halogen Continues veers wildly in styles; at one end of the spectrum, there's the gentle ambience and hazy textures of "Autofloat" and "Lag 7", while at the other end, there are mental, Liberator-meets-gabba workouts like the mental acid of the aptly-named "160 Techno" and the sluggish bass and hyperactive jungle / break beats of "Borealis" and "Lag 9". It's not all extremes however, and some of the most impressive tracks come when Porgrimsson provides his own interpretation of classic styles, eg on the robotic, stark electro of "Lag 24". It's a fitting tribute to one of electronic music's most maverick artists.
