Label owner Peter Van Hoesen and Yves De Mey's collaborative project finally reaches the album format. Geotope provides an outlet for both producers to give full vent to the abstract tendencies that make their techno releases so distinctive. This approach is audible on "Terminal Silver Box", where a droning bass and pitch-bent, glitchy percussion dominate, or on the grandly named " Refusal To Celebrate A Statistical Probability", which features the kind of rolling bass and washes of percussive interference that have won Van Hoesen's warehouse techno releases so much acclaim, minus the DJ-friendly beats. There are some nods towards the dance floor, particularly on the understated builds of "Following the Constant", but in the main this fascinating work focuses on the experimental.
