Mak and Pasteman come in strong for Materials' fifth outing, the former having already appeared on a number of labels, while the latter gets his first shot at the big game right here. Very much in line with Mak's versatility, Materials 005 is a true hybrid of an EP, where techno, house and UK bass are mashed up good and proper. Both "The Whale" and "Runout" are carried forwards by a menacing techno beat, but the sonics circling above them could easily be on an acid tune or a heavy dubstep cut. Similarly, "Artefacts" goes for a 4/4 approach, only to be drained and beaten down by a swarm of killer bass. Watch out!
