Keeping up the pressure with their anonymous EP series, R-Zone now offer up three more cuts of purely dance floor aligned action. Opener 'You Wear The Mask Of The Beast' is a mysterious cut with a spooky lead synth, subtle, buried deep drums that are full of implicit energy and build to a heady peak. Raw textures, unfamiliar patterns and perfect back room vibes all pervade. 'Salt Volatile This Sucka' is a slow mo but chugging track with frazzled synth lines, atmospheric pads and curious melodies all spiralling above lazy, ramshackle drums. Last but not least, 'Arrowhead', a sludgy, dirty, sleazy groove that sounds broken. It's a fantastic fusion of fucked up machines sounds that keeps you on edge throughout. Once again here R-Zone have confounded all expectations with their left-of-centre electronica.
