Review: Nick Lapien has received acclaim for his exploration of the outer limits of electronic music with his ebm/post-punk influenced Metropolis project. Therefore, A Change feels like an appropriate title for his latest release under his own name. Like his club-based records on DVS1's label, it sees the Dutch producer tailor his sound for Rekids. The title track is a heads-down, rolling affair, led by a surging bass and the occasional chord stab. "As It Is" explores the grey area between tough NY house and techno tools so beloved of Rekids with a female vocal sample and a mysterious organ playing out over dense drums. The final track, "Vexed" is more laid back, but even amid its reflective synths there's a niggling bass.

Review: Dutch producer Nick Lapien has developed quite a sound over the course of just a few releases with Bliq, Sequencias and Photic Fields; whether it's as Lapien or Metropolis, there is always a smoky, cinematic quality to his output that borrows elements from Chicago house or Detroit techno but always presents them within his own sonic framework. The Marchland EP sees Lapien add local concern Photic Fields to his collection and presents both of his production approaches. There's plenty to enjoy with both sides here too, be it the looseness of percussion and the thickness of harmony that present a nice contrast in the opening Lapien production "Ballad of a Man" or the abstracted, curvaceous 303 manoeuvres of Metropolis closer "The Gatekeeper".
