Revisiting the wilder of his many aliases, Stefan Schwander goes further into experimental territory as Harmonious Thelonious, making his first appearance on Belgian outpost of fringe techno Meakusma. The scope and depth of this EP is bewildering, not least on "The Grasshopper Was The Witness". A dizzying combination of tribal rhythmic structures pounds out underneath complex chimes and stark synth lines that all intertwine in a rich tapestry of otherworldly beat science with an organic heart beating away at its core. Likewise "The Malag" thrills with its rough and tumble groove and wall-of-sound bass stab, ever building in exotic intensity. Elmore Judd and Rown Park do a great service to "The Grasshopper...", simply expanding on the African themes the original laid out and taking the track on safari.
