Prophase Metaphase Anaphase Telophase

Don’t Be Afraid
The US producer delivers a varied release for Semtek’s label. On one side there’s the whip-crackle percussion and acid tingle of ‘Prophase Metaphase Anaphase Telophase’. These elements are combined with a brittle rhythm and dreamy synth-lines and it sounds like Gwyer’s attempt at making Detroit techno. On the flip there are more surprises in store; she meanders into lullaby ambience with ‘And Again Those Eyes’, while on 'Meiosis Gametes' pits frazzled snares and clunky drum distortion against Beltran-esque serenity. It’s a masterful, mixed release.
