|2.||"Paracelsus Beat 2"|
It sounds like Milo Smee is on a one-man mission to turn inject some chaos back into techno and his debut album as Bintus goes a long way to counteracting the prevailing air of furrowed brow seriousness. "Stellar Drain" kick starts the release with distorted kicks and a grainy acid line, while "Paracelcus Beat 2" is an even more abrasive take on this sound. "Cylinder Bop" sees Smee flirt with industrial sounds - not the mock-doominess we hear so often these days, but the grating sheet metal paranoia of Swans, set to a buzzing bassline. Finally, the off the wall "Basket Case" bring the release to a close with its razor-sharp percussive groove that speeds up and slows down inexplicably.
