After the success of the label's debut release, firm favourite, The Machinists returns to MER with a 6 track mini album of textual audio finery titled 'Revert'. Signed to a number of labels already, this Glasgow-based brings an intensity and raw power to bare on everything he produces, much like the industrial city he calls home.
First up, '129 Exp' centres around an ear worn synth line that soon hypnotises the floor as the pounding 808 kicks and scattery percussions drive the track forward. 'Deep Shift' does just that, warm augmented pads and crisp hats welcome you as The Machinists recreate some jazzy basement jams not out of place in deepest darkest Detroit.
Wonky drums and sparse percussion drive 'Hi Fi' forward as melodic elements layered alongside percussive ones take you on a wild ride. 'Placid' is anything but. Doused in acid, its menace in dance floor catnip. Gargantuan drums and groovy sonics give 'Revert' a stadium-esque feel and drive. Finally, Velvet rounds things off with live drumming and a jazzy deep bass before rich, warm pads take you off to dreamland.
