This split EP serves up a wide range of techno sounds and explores some unexpected areas. The aptly name "Dark Blue" is a melancholic affair, its sad electronic melodies building over a shuffling, stepping rhythm. It's a glorious piece of introspective electronic music. Ballistic 2 picks up the pace on "Untitled" - spot the classic faceless techno name - a slamming industrial track with nightmarish tones, and "Manipulate", which veers further down this hard-hitting route. But Jose Pouj's "Mantoux" takes the listener back from the void with steely rhythms underpinning haunting synth lines. It redresses the balance and ensures Ballistic 2 evenly fuses light and dark techno flavours.
