- Wax:On residents Nathan Liddle-Hulme and Timothy Clerkin have been turning out consistently excellent EPs from similar ingredients—chunky vintage synths, popping percussion and extra-meaty basslines—since 2009. In 3 Days Of The Condor they have another set of toothsome, mid-paced electro/techno cuts destined for the DJ sets of Ivan Smagghe, Daniel Avery and the like.
"Modechine" is a particularly heady delight, with clanking synth stabs brightly illuminating a landscape of creeping bass. "3 Days Of The Condor"'s central bass riff calls to mind an updated, more sedate take on Blackstrobe's early '00s hits, and its insistent, maximal percussion and synth textures invite similar comparisons. The Pulp Disco & The Outcasts "8th Circuit Mix" of the title track brings an even heavier bass synth down onto sharp percussion and spacey, echoing high notes. "Fockewulf," meanwhile, is a robotic chugger, with cut-up voice samples augmenting another ominous bassline and retro-futuristic percussion flourishes.
