Fresh from unleashing their excellent album A Sensible Alternative To Emotion on Oscar Mulero’s Pole Recordings, heavy hitting Spanish duo Exium return to their own Nheoma label for this split release with Kwartz. The first of the two tracks by Exium is «Wolf Rayet», a tunnelling boom of cavernous techno, while the Jeff Mills inspirations come to the surface in «Fenomen», sounding like a heavier take on the Detroit producer’s Something In The Sky series. Mario Campos’ emerging Kwartz project proves to be just as impressive; «Sinapsis» maintains the industrial edge of the EP with more loopy, reverberant beats. «The Beginning of The End» sees a ghostly synth line sliced apart by the kind of forceful drums and smashing hi-hats.
