Review: Before they re-appeared last year, Dutch duo Edge of Motion had been out of the loop for the best part of a decade. However, as this release shows, they have lost none of their ability to deliver take-no-prisoners hard techno. "Anarchy" sets the tone for the release with its relentless, heads-down rhythm and searing industrial riffs, followed by the gritty, bleeding acid of "3 The Hard Way". By the time the pair reach the aptly-titled "Acid Storm" they are in Plastikman-on-steroids territory, with a ferocious volley of building 303s confronting the listener over relentless kicks. "Rip Curl" closes out the release in a blaze of relentless acid and furious, high-octane drum patterns.
Review: Here's a welcome return from one of the 90s long-lost techno acts. Edge of Motion are Gert-Jan Schonewille and Dylan '2000 & One' Hermelijn, who graced labels like Djax and 100% Pure back in the day. The duo has decided to revive the project and have even set up a label of the same name as a platform to release material on. If you're a fan of frazzled, raw techno, then this release is for you; acid gurgles its way over pile-driving kicks and zinging percussion on "Motion Denied"; "Bar 233" is a master-class in panning, bass-heavy force and "Point Taken" is a militaristic slab of head rush kicks and 303 madness.
