Under his XDB guise, Kosta Athanassiadis has been responsible for killer dubby techno and deep house releases on Sistrum and Metrolux. The fact that he's releasing on Echocord suggests that he is keen to highlight the dub side of his productions, but the opposite is true. The title track is a deep, dreamy affair, with XDB deploying a squelching, throbbing bass with devastating effect. Meanwhile, "Blakpin" is more sombre and showcases his esoteric side, as ghostly analogue synths and eerie horns wind their way through a shuffling groove. Finally, Sven Weismann scatters rattling percussion over brittle beats for his understated yet individualistic take on "Apari".
