Given that Krake is an annual, Berlin-based festival celebrating "challenging electronic music", you'd expect this second EP from their label offshoot to be packed with intriguing, left-of-centre gems. Happily, it is, with heaps of off-kilter goodness to enjoy. Arguably the highlight is Eomac's "No Name", a throbbing combination of jaunty, post-dubstep beats, dreamy chords and cut-up choral samples. Equally impressive are Phon.o's picturesque electronica cut "Tell Me" and "Interrupt" by the ever-reliable Monolake, a clanking, metallic foray into wonky, heads-down techno. In truth, all seven tracks are excellent, with the droning ambient contributions from Christian Vogel and Dammern also hitting home hard.
