Christopher Manik resurfaces on Firehouse following fine EPs for culprit, Lost Records, Ovum and, most recently, Poker Flat. Perhaps the most arresting track is opener "Mortal Frequencies", a breakbeat-driven, bass-heavy tribute to the bleep-influenced style of house and techno that came out of his home city of New York (and particularly the studio of Frankie Bones) between 1989 and '91. "Gimme Something to Dance To" sees him lace raw and ragged acid lines around clattering machine percussion, while "Let There Be Acid" sounds like a long-lost Armando or Maurice jam. As if that wasn't enough, closer "Poem" wouldn't sound out of place on the first Orbital album.
