This is Kaspar's second release on Pets having also put out material recently for Upon You and Kompakt's Exklusiv offshoot. Like Pets' owners, Catz N'Dogz, Kaspar mines a freestyle form of minimal house and techno. This is most audible on "Strout". The bass lunges and lurches unpredictably, there are blasts and bursts of atonal noise and a rickety percussive accompaniment that holds the arrangement together. He adopts a far different approach on "Roundhouse"; closer in sound to late 90s party techno, it centers on a rolling rhythm, larger than life horn stabs and the kind of rolling snares that are the polar opposite of glum minimalism.
