The Rapid Ear Movement EP further bolsters both A Sagittariun's reputation and that of his label, Elastic Dreams. Rather like the opening track from his last EP, A Transparent Mind, "A Lucid Dream" kicks off unsettlingly, its focus a wonky acid motif, before submerging under a layer of rolling, snappy breakbeats. Midway through, the edges are softened by heady synth pulses and live percussion. Stefan Robbers' remix as Terrace pushes it towards swampier territories, all squelch and brutal thump.
"The Mojo Odyssey" is bang on the money. Joining the dots between dubby techno, UK bass and deep house, it emerges from a cloud of intricate percussion and thick, heavily delayed analogue keys into a wide-open space of fat congas and stabbing synths. In what's fast becoming an A Sagitarriun trademark, it's deep but bears its teeth, too.
