Hot on the heels of his EP for Earwiggle, Marco Bruno lands on Ben Sims' Hardgroove. "Trademark" merges depth with force, as Bruno lets a looped chord sequence and chilling strings play out over dubby beats and rasping percussion. On "Interstellar", he doubles down on dub techno influences, and over dense drums and rasping percussion, drops woozy chords. "Stepback" also follows a similar approach, but it sounds more ominous. There, repetitive chimes and a nagging bass come together to exude a sense of menace. The label owner also provides an edit of another Bruno production, "Circle Of Life". Teeming with ethereal melodies, its tough kicks mean it remains rooted to the dance floor.
