Crocodiles In The Ceiling EP

Ecstatic Recordings
Richard Smith, aka L/F/D/M, has put out some impressive records lately, but ‘Crocodiles’ raises the bar. ‘Lego Train Crashes’ is dense, droning hardware techno, the buckled rhythm collapsing in on itself, while ‘Rum & Black’ is a low-slung, fuzzy groove reminiscent of Frak. ‘Elek F’ sees him explore electro, albeit a rough and ready interpretation that rides a murky bass. ‘Take A Chance’ completes the release with a powerful bass and a groove that shuffles with more poise and skill than a Vegas card dealer.
