Forward Strategy Group have been responsible for some of the most visceral techno in recent years. On this occasion, they decide to work separately, but the results are just as devastating. Al 'Smear' Mathews's "Inert" is a jacking track coated with razor blade percussion, its juddering rhythm threatening to decapitate anyone who gets too close. The Retail & Leisure version is just as intense, its droning textures and yelping acid supporting a vocal sample that claims 'we are psychos'. Meanwhile, the other FSG member Patrick Walker adds to the prevailing mood by dropping the stomping beats and mysterious effects of "Phase Linear", while the only esoteric moment occurs on Boex & Miller's spaced out take on "Phase Linear".
