Supposedly this is the first in a series of collaborations between US producer Matrixxman and Sam Coates aka Setaoc Mass, a Figure regular. Certainly, this debut release will leave its audience craving more. "Vortex" is a rolling, hypnotic groove that resounds to an ominous, oppressive bass that sounds like it was lifted from No U-Turn's back catalogue, while "Second" is a leaner, more linear version of this sound. On "Reckoning", the pair takes their cues from minimalism with a visceral steely rhythm and one-note synth menace prevailing, before a ghostly synth passage takes hold. Finally, "Pitch Black" is a cold, bleepy groove that resounds to angular percussive bursts.
