Streching...

production facilities to extreme limits. That is the whole of this techno beast of a recording. It is about extreme beat and compression...and much suffocation which will enliven your air space and cause a giant thick invisible wave of bass and distortion to throb, pulse, resonate back and forth hypnotically within the walls of your room...within the walls of your head. An excellent experiment which has gained several repeated listening sessions here. Recommended for open-minded techno and bass-heads alike.

I love this.

I'm a little biased, as my handle would indicate, but the fact that this music is Bristolian has nothing to do with why I like it so much. There's as much to hear in the sound of a programmed kick on this album as there is in most entire compositions. And it swings like nothing I've heard this year.

They Say All Music Guide

Emptyset is a production duo from Bristol, U.K., the same city that produced Tricky and Massive Attack in the 1990s. Like those artists, their work is based in large part around the manipulation of low frequencies, but unlike them, there is no interest here in having a hit record or even writing a song as such. This is ultra-minimal instrumental music primarily constructed of sine waves, rhythmic hissing, carefully manipulated static, and bass that booms, rumbles and throbs. Some tracks are faster, some are softer, some offer sounds like a vacuum cleaner heard down a distant subway tunnel while others hum at the frequency the doctor uses when he’s testing your hearing. At times it’s reminiscent of the dubby, enigmatic 12″ singles released on the Basic Channel label; at its noisiest, it recalls the work of Finnish duo Pan Sonic. It’s not exactly techno, it’s not dubstep, and it’s not industrial. It’s somewhere in the middle of those, a sort of black hole into which an unwary listener can quite easily fall and find him or herself spending an hour spinning in disoriented circles, wondering who turned the lights out. – Phil Freeman
