X Manray

Look back through their catalogue and you’ll find that this is only the fifth EP from The Connection Machine in the past 23 years. Yet like their 1994 debut, ‘Bitflower', this all too rare appearance shows why Jeroen Brandjes and Natasja Hagemeier are so well regarded. ‘X Manray’ is an atmospheric, abstract cut that features Hagemeier’s muffled vocals riding a misty melody, while ‘Echoes From Tau Ceti’ is mesmerisingly deep techno that not even the surprisingly jolly brass sample can detract from.
