In his formative years, Neil Landstrumm was a huge fan of "Yorkshire bleep and bass", the sparse, sub-heavy style of techno that emerged from the North of England at the tail end of the 1980s. He's paid tribute to it in his music on many occasions, though never in as concentrated a way as found on this fantastic 12" for Chris Smith's brilliant CPU imprint. For proof, check the aggressive electronics, Xon style melodies and "LFO" sub of opener "The Tomorrow People", the early Orbital style "bleep and breaks" of "Chrome and Ferric", the deep space brilliance of "Sahara" (which our resident bleep nerd compared favourably to Robert Gordon's legendary remixes of Cabaret Voltaire's "Easy Life") and the mind-altering late night sleaze of closer "The Chemical Con".
