When it comes to fuzzy, noisy, off-the-wall techno sketches, Portland's Best Available Technology is up there with the likes of Container and the rest of the US' crunch-heads. He returns for London's left_blank with only his second EP and it's a five-track monster. From "Neon Razor Chain" and "Strobic", BAT uses his splinters of hardware distortion to construct a detailed arrangement and creates one hell of an ambience. Not all the tracks are tied to a 4/4 construction; "Jackal Code" is in fact a tripping, half-time track packed with BAT's familiar curls of distortion. Our favourite has to be the dubby, twisting groove that lays on "Digi Hex": It puts a real spin onto all that dub techno malarkey!
