Review: Luz1e has put out music on respected underground labels like Lobster Theremin and Shall Not Fade, and now delivers this four-tracker for Australian imprint International Chrome. The aptly named Cybernetic Movement is a masterclass in tough, visceral electro: "Surge" sounds like a cross between Aux 88 funk and the fuzzy bass of Control Tower, while on "Seismic Shift", Luz1e lets loose with raw tonal bleeps and nightmarish synth stabs. This release is really a purist's dream, and the Frankfurt producer explores a ghetto-style approach on the vocal sampling "U Said I Couldn't Do It' - surely a future DJ Stingray favourite - while it concludes with the captivatingly bleak title track.
Review: Two years on from an impressive first appearance on Lobster Theremin, Luz1e transfers to Shall Not Fade and notches up another rock solid label debut. She hits the ground round running with title track "Ridin", a bustling chunk of ghetto-house influenced breakbeat deepness full of warm chords and cut-up vocal snippets, before joining the dots between two-step garage, breakbeat and drowsy deepness on the arguably even better "Hyperfunk (Deep Break Cut)". She reaches for the alien, acid style electronics on the dreamy ghetto-tech rush of "Damn Boi", while "Early Reflections" is another ear-catching trip into woozy, glassy-eyed breakbeat territory complete with glacial pads and redlined analogue bass.
