From Beyond's "Old Steel" was one of the highlights of Paper Recordings' most recent Trash The Wax compilation (volume five, to be exact), so hopes are high for this first outing on the label's Paper Disco offshoot. Happily, opener "Love Languages" is something of a skewed, mind-altering dancefloor treat, with the producer building up intensity via regular changes to the track's angular acid bassline, alien synth lines (think Maurice Fulton's Syclops project, and you're close) and jazzy, swinging machine drums. Elsewhere, "Phase Shift" sounds like a Blade Runner-inspired nu-Italo banger, while similarly raw and analogue closer "Galaxy Express" pulses, throbs and pops in all the right places.
