Centrally Processed Unit EP

Kr!z's label has staked out its own sound - something that is extremely difficult to achieve in techno music - and this release typifies the Token approach. 'Analogue Lies' is stripped-back but complex, as drums bang together, the hum of static interference crackles through the arrangement and the tonal bleeps just about contain the sense of menace. The killer track here is 'Limited Competition'; its central riff sounds like a chain being swung through the air, whooshing and whistling as it goes, and its percussion is so intricate and complex that it can only be observed properly under a microscope.
