“Part 1” picks up where 2015`s “You`re Not A Machine” left off, with a similar sparse clanking industrial rhythm, not hard or punishing, more like the clockwork turning on Professor Brainstorm contraption but with the precision of robots on a production line. That previous 12`s sampled dialogue swapped for gentle analogue melody.

“Part 2” increases to a tempo driven by a bass line that resembles a big House hit of `89 (that for the moment escapes me). As the track`s Electro percussion builds in complexity the sound of Fairlight stars twinkling friendly brighten an otherwise dark firmament. The final result is not unlike fellow Antipodeans Severed Heads` electronic dance classic / Shoom favourite “Greater Reward”.
