Valence provided the forum for Ambivalent to reinvent himself. Formerly associated with minimalism and the Minus label, the US producer now makes some of the finest contemporary club techno. "Untitled" is a case in point: over a robust kick, he lays down a howling siren riff and a crisp percussive backing. There is a clarity of sound and precision audible here that few of his contemporaries can reach. On "Gorge", he uses a similarly tough backing, but lays down a searing acid line as an accompaniment. "Interrupted" closes the release with the kind of lush ambient techno that was a staple of producers like Orbital and System 7 during the 90s.
