It sounds like Loco Dice's label is embracing techno purism if this release is anything to go on. The work of the owner of the Etruria Beat label, Optical merges the hypnotic qualities of loop techno with the cavernous sound of Modern Love's reverb-heavy dub. On "Swiss Train", this combination is thrilling and exhilarating, with the rolling, rollicking rhythm boasting more twists and turns than a train ride through an alpine tunnel. In other instances, like on "Bubbles" or "High Pressure", the snapping percussion and insistent pulses almost knock the listener back like an electric shock. The dubbed out chords of "Synthesis" sound almost mellow by comparison.
