Alex Smoke Presents Wraetlic Sampler

Convex Industries
A new side project from the Scottish techno wizard Mr Smoke, named Wraetlic, meaning wraith-like in old Anglo-Saxon, perfectly conjures up the other-worldliness of this project. The opener on this 10" sampler is 'Rats', a particularly unsettling, discordant, semi-glitched scrape of electronica. 'Refrain' morphs out of the gentle glint of sparkling bleeps, dissolving into grainy mulch, much like the spooked soul of 'The Watching Eye', until Scuba's SCB persona stretches 'Rats' over a marauding seven minutes of prime techno.
