Mathis Mootz aka The Panacea was originally known for his drum'n'bass releases, but changed course and now does a face-melting variation on hard techno. As the title track on Boundaries, his second release for Sonic Groove demonstrates, he hasn't lost his love of break beats - and the grinding, pile-driving track occasionally drops into breaks and sped-up, hardcore vocal samples. "Fibre Optix" is somewhat more restrained, but while the tempo is less hectic, the arrangement still implodes in a wall of acid-drenched noise. "The Sign" sees Mootz veer down an industrial route as a streamlined, pulsating groove underpins tortured vocal samples, while "Walrus" marks a return of those unmistakable break beats, this time supporting distorted noise.
