Matt Spendlove aka Spatial pushes house music to its outer limits and back for this release on Jimmy Edgar's label. The title track is probably the most conventional arrangement, a stripped back groove that gradually builds to reveal kooky vocals and pulsing blips and bleeps. "Eloptic Energy" sounds like Spendlove has immersed himself in dub reggae. Leaning heavily on the reverb, the arrangement is full of plaintive vocals and underscored by solid beats and snappy percussion. "Sufani" veers towards dubstep, its stepping rhythm and horror stabs recalling a time before the bass-techno alliance. Finally, there's the oddball "Recover". Here, Spendlove deploys a stepping rhythm, but it's the backdrop to a compelling hook that sounds like Jeff Mills' "Changes of Life" on downers.
