Upon launching the Hadal label back in 2013, Pangaea described it as "a series of self-released records", rather than an imprint separate to the Hessle Audio operation founded with Ben UFO and Pearson Sound. Since, he's been as good as his word, using it to put out occasional 12" singles of his own. This third release in the series contains plenty of floor-friendly fare, beginning with the distorted, broken techno rhythms, druggy textures and intricate, chiming melodies of "Something In Your Eye". There's a more classic bruk feel to the heavy, dubwise swagger of "Stimulant Dub", while "New Shapes In The Air" skillfully combines a ludicrously weighty sub bassline with wonky electronics and metronomic techno rhythms. Finally, he closes proceedings with "They Buy Gold", a fittingly intense, acid-flecked techno stomper.
