This release could do without the aptly named ‘Functional’ and ‘UN’. Both are solid but uninspiring techno workouts, comprising heavy kicks, doubled up claps and laced with sub-Sandwell District gloom. Neither do justice to an artist who clearly has much more going on. Thankfully, the Livity Sound artist presents a far more creative sound on ‘Wait’, where a fusion of sinewy bass, a stepping rhythm and jittery vocals impress. ‘Reshape’ is even better, with a rolling, filtered groove and loose percussion creating an intoxicating fusion.
