Headlining the second release from the fledging Resin label - which takes the form of a various artists EP - is the dynamic Bleaching Agent, whose track "Akplenc" sees the UK artist thros down a stubborn 4/4 beat and let his synths run wild as if possessed. Of the three other names to appear Pris is the most familiar, having supplied the label with its debut. Like that first EP, "Pencil Pusher" is dry, dusty and stripped back, while Divided provides something halfway between a Developer production and a Deadbeat dub. Closing the EP is Manse whose first effort "Slacker" sounds like someone writing a CV to release on Oscar Mulero's Pole Group or Ostgut Ton: big.
Joining London labels like Ear to Ground is the new imprint Resin. For its fifth release, it showcases the talents of UK producer Divided, who had previously featured on one of the label's split releases. "Eigen" starts the release with a formidable mood , its stomping beats and shredded drums underpinning a galloping, runaway rhythm. "Eventide" sees Divided make a digression with a stepping rhythm and subsonic pulses, while "Dawn" inhabits a strange place where jazzy licks and an off rhythm collide. While Divided never rekindles the intensity of "Eigen", the closing track, "First Light", is a swinging, noisy workout, full of industrial menace.
