Deepchord and Modern Love may have got most of the plaudits for the dub techno revival, but Deadbeat's contribution should not be forgotten either. On Drawn & Quartered, the Canadian producer moves effortlessly between ambience and bassy techno, but his overall approach remains constant. "First Quarter" is a dreamy affair, but sounds and ideas flow in and out of the arrangement at will, as if Deadbeat keeps changing his mind and going off on tangents. On "Second Quarter" this hyperactivity is borne out by the shift from a dubby, drum-heavy groove into a deep chord reverie, while "Third Quarter" does the opposite, starting off with soft-focus melodies before moving into a system-levelling bass techno track.
