Adam X's Sonic Groove label delivers its latest slice of hard-hitting techno, with another EP from Diagenetic Origin. Despite sounding like its connected to L.Ron Hubbard's dubious self-help system of a very similar name, this producer is all about hard, industrial and acid influences; "Third Dimension" covers its rattling, broken rhythms in a suitably gothic atmosphere, while the appropriately named "Entity" seems to writhe with an living energy, with 303 tendrils flicking out from around dense kicks. Although "Council Of Nine" is as hard a techno tool as they come, the closing title track has just enough fragile melody lurking in the background of its mechanical clutter to show that there's a human side to the Diagenetic Origin name.
