It's been a few years since Pilo aka James Ward released on Boysnoize, but as A.R.E.A demonstrates, his sound is right at home on the German label. There's the pulsating menace of "Acid By Mouth", while on "Ruhig", Ward goes down a more conventional techno route to deliver a rolling, noisy club track. "Exit The Artificial" sees the US producer operate in a more extreme edge of the dance floor, with a brutal, stepping rhythm providing the basis for noisy, feedback-drenched stabs. Finally, "Adapt Tactics" sees him push into abstract territory as slowed down drums and gut-busting bass prevail.
