Tech Level 2: Depths EP

Justin Broadrick briefly made extremely hard-edged drum’n’bass as Tech Level 2 during the late ’90s and early 2000s, then revived the alias for a new EP last year. This is a set of shelved productions originally meant for release on Danny C’s Teknological imprint. It is, honestly, some of the absolute best work Broadrick’s ever done, in my opinion. Ultra-aggressive d’n’b with bass that absolutely smothers, probably too overloaded for most typical DJs and fans of the genre, but fuck ’em. The first track rocks well from the depths of hell, and the second out-menaces Future Forces/Bad Company. “Suspended” is heavily tense without exploding as much as the others. “Returned to the Depths”, though, no kidding — sheer terror assault at 100 miles an hour.
