Clockwork Atom - (7:37)
   
Islands Of Glass - (5:10) Biggest-selling track on this release
   
The Descent - (5:08)
Review: From the peerless Detroit electro of Dopplereffekt to Rob Clouth's glitch techno, Leisure System is fast becoming one of the most diverse labels operating in the electronic music space. It's hard to say if Atom will find favour with those who hang on Gerald Donald's every note, but there is no doubt that Clouth does a fine job of interpreting decidedly Germanic influences. This is especially audible on the title track, a compelling mish-mash of glistening trance melodies and subtle, micro-house rhythms. "Islands of Glass" is a more abstract, stripped back affair, but melodies are never far from a Clouth release, and "The Descent" teems with melancholic piano playing before unexpectedly breaking down into a cacophony of warped noise.

Sifting Through Static - (8:19) 126 BPM
Review: German label Traum continues to explore the middle ground between trance, IDM and minimalism on Complex. "The Bridge and the Clouds" features wiry rhythms and day-glow, trancey melodies, while the title track is more insistent; based on a rolling, relentlessly banging rhythm, its stop-start arrangement shudders and stutters until chiming melodies and a strangely-placed sax sample kick in. "Sifting through Static" pursues this approach to its logical conclusion and ends up with a glitch web of tangled minimal techno, while "Falling Stones" sits at the other end of the spectrum. Warmer sounding and based on tumbling break beats, it shows a human element to a sound that is often rigid and robotic.

Thin Shell, Inner Void - (7:59) 130 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
The Galaxy Collapsed Into A Point - (6:09) 156 BPM
Review: Rob Cloth finally returns to Berlin's party-turned-label, Leisure System, with a fine blend of his very own bass house amalgamations. "The Smallest Measurable Space" kicks the EP of with a heavy dose of bass and boken drum patterns - a guaranteed monster on the Funktion One's - followed by the more IDM-fuelled "Cracks In The Fermament", a lovely bit of sci-fi breaks action. "Thin Shell, Inner Void" is the oddest and most distorted groove yet thanks to its complex drum patterns and folding arrangement, while "The Galaxy Collapsed Into A Point" takes care of the ambience with its masterful strokes of pads and lonesome synths. Tip!

Max Cooper - "Resynthesis" - (5:23) 121 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Max Cooper - "Stacked Moments" - (7:06) 122 BPM
   
Corporeal - (9:13) 59 BPM
Review: For this project which explores the intersection of science, music and art, Max Cooper was influenced by varying interpretations of time. For the inspiration behind the EP, he said he was trying to find an explanation for our experience of time - a growing physical dimension that we experience in the present, but on the cusp of inflation. Pretty deep stuff! Furthermore, the visual and musical ideas were conceived during train journeys, then taken into the studio to form each track, and finally a collaboration with Kevin McGloughlin created video representations that will feature in their upcoming live show. The sombre and introspective ambient journey "Veil Of Time" starts things off until "Resynthesis" kicks in with the groove on this lush deep tech house journey backed by superior sound design. "Stacked Moments" takes things up a notch yet again on this hard hitting effort - possibly the most most aggressive we've ever heard from the Irishman. Its broken rhythms approaching near industrial moments, backed by some abrasive sonic textures. Finally his collaboration with Rob Clouth entitled "Corporeal" (heard previously on Cooper's Essential Mix) features the sound of a synth run through a radio transmitter!

Silica (Chihei Hatakeyama remix) - (6:01) 146 BPM
Review: After a hiatus, Spanish producer Rob Clouth returns with this remix package on Max Cooper's label. Cooper himself is first up with stepping, grinding take on "Shedding Layers". Broken beats and grungy bass tones provide the backdrop for Clouth's spacey synths, but on this occasion, it's all about Cooper's distinctive rhythms. On a totally different tact is Ben Lukas Boysen's version of "Transition". The storied producer forsakes kick drums in favour of a dreamy tapestry of interwoven textures and melodies that swoops into a cacophony of synth dreaminess. It sounds like the soundtrack to an as yet produced sci-fi movie. Brecon's take on "Silica" sees him deliver woozy textures over a seductive, languid back beat, while rounding off the package is Chihei Hatakeyama's ambient version of the same track.

The Vacuum State (edit) - (4:34) 61 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Making something of an impact with the two records he released with Leisure System in 2014-15, Rob Clouth's bleep, rave, hardcore and IDM manifestations make it back to Mesh for a second label offering in two years. It follows the release of his Transition EP for the label last year and presents something of a reprise to those four tracks, with the delicate, cosmo-euphoric electronics of "Vacuum State" . Two versions here for your liking.

Emerging From (edit) - (4:24) 63 BPM
Review: As Max Cooper's Mesh label pushes further into deeper sonic realms it's Rob Clouth who has indeed been the emerging one. The artist has been responsible for the label's recent run of releases, with the past three being his own. Bringing together visions of Moderat and Pantha Du Prince meeting somewhere on the outskirts of the UK's bleep scene, progressions and arpeggios make their way out of a glitch cycle of static percussions and syncopated, undulating rhythms that builds into a IDM crescendo of tunneling euphoria in true Rob Clouth style.
