‘The Focus’ kicks things off with an urgent, wrought iron loop that hacks it’s way through intensifying drums which build towards a mangled and mind-bending breakdown. The pressure doesn’t let up as the tracks charges to it’s conclusion, propelled by a kick as hefty as a mallet that keeps you trapped in a bit-crushed cage.

‘R14’ then follows up with a highly effective, capacious Techno track. With drums as thick as they come – panned, reverberated textures and a consistent stab are suffused with a metallic texture that provides a chilly but highly kinetic energy before Jelena’s remix brings the record to a close.

Her interpretation sets shimmering subs create a buoyant bed for the track – the kick bounces off from it as another pupil-widening sequence wades in. An elongated breakdown reaches it’s zenith before letting go in a manner guaranteed to send the floor into rapture.
