Opal Tapes and Lobster Theremin aside, S Olbricht has landed on some of the most interesting independent house and techno labels over the last three years, and so this new EP for Lee Gamble's UIQ seems like a natural fit. This guy's style of house and techno is as loose and leftfield as you can possibly get for club music, a starting from the slithering beats and swamped sonics of "137x3brk" we get an instant picture of Olbricht's freedom behind that mixing desk. This open-minded take on the genre is yet more evident on the gloriously off-kilter "Ktyring", and reaches a total climax of abstraction though the nearly beatless "J UC". "F1oa1" is a hard techno missile in terms of its beats, but the melodies gliding high in the mix have more in common with ambient than anything dance-based. It's a real excursion...the sort of EP that makes the whole 'outsider' moniker seem credible.
