Keith Tucker's Optic Nerve project is synonymous with electro, but on Fragments, he focuses on dance floor techno. That said, this four-tracker sees the veteran Detroit producer retain a similar set of influences; the title track resounds to shuffling drums and a bubbling bass, while on "Echoes", Tucker deploys robust kicks to reimagine the shiny, synth-led futurism of vintage Optic Nerve for techno dance floors. "Metallics" is powered by the same propulsive bass and surging melodies that propelled the classic 2009 Optic Nerve release Reassimilation, while the purring low end and chiming hooks of "Sequence In Time" show that Tucker is at home making techno as electro.
