Having welcomed the supreme talents of Hakim Murphy into the Plan B fold with last year's well received Sampled Dreams EP; label boss DJ Spider now unveils the Kaiju EP, six tracks of B movie sci fi techno. "Submerged Giant" seems a rather pertinent title for the opening track with waves of monolithic pressure deep in the swampy production, off kilter percussive textures and gurgling analogue embellishments driving the track forward regardless. The rumbling aqueous "Thermionic Emission" makes for a largely beatless interlude that sounds like it surfaced from an underwater laboratory. Those seeking straight up techno will find little on this record, though the elasticised analogue groove at the core of "Attack Lines" and the fizzing, metallic "Sector Zero" are resolute highlights of a starkly individual EP from two of the US's most idiosyncratic producers.
