96 Back: Sugilite

One of CPU’s primary electro alchemists makes the leap to Local Action with one of his most advanced, club-forward releases yet. “Half a Reach” is the type of ultra-detailed IDM which doesn’t abandoned the funk and places an equal emphasis on breakbeat buggery, haunting melodies, and chippy synth tones. “Hot Tip” starts out a little close to the Bug’s mutated dancehall, but gets more cybernetic from there. “Inclination Fresh” is more funky IDM that always moves in different directions but doesn’t get it twisted. “Waif” has much more of a heavier electro beat, but it’s still filled with corkscrews, drop-outs, and change-ups. Way excited to hear where he goes from here.
