While [Jeff] Mills sought to critique the ways in which urban centers have been designed and created for us, Galcher and Alvin are using techno, under the influence of science fiction, to consider the possibilities of what a city might become. With atmospheric synthesizers and puttering drum patterns, they evoke a changing urban environment.
The recording sees Galcher in fine form, mixing between his unique rap-house hybrids into some more upfront forms of techno that would have undoubtedly had the Dalston basement’s walls shaking. Galcher exhibits an unpretentious rough-and-ready mixing style, scratching his records and occasionally stopping one and playing another from the edge.
