Dawid Kowalski A very original and inspiring blend of industrial, experimental and noise music. The compositions feature a wide array of techniques and approaches and it really shows. The atmosphere here is dark in a non-cliche way. Very interesting and engaging.

This follow-up to his debut 2CS box "Failing to Maintain" (and it's companion 7" "Retention" on Torn Light) shows Justin Lakes at peak form, utilizing restrained repetition and subtle degradation of sources & sum to create a work that is both menacing and contemplative. Tape collage, processed field recordings, broken electronics.
