While listening to "Junot," the second cut from London producer Edmondson's new EMF: 003 EP, it seems easy to forget that there was ever a human involved in the track's creation; its sharp percussion and perfectly aligned rhythms sound more machine than man. Still, the tune is far from lifeless. The moving parts of "Junot" create a constant pulse that keeps it lurching forward until Edmondson injects just a touch of emotion into the proceeding, laying down a thick bassline and rising chords that make for a particularly moody breakdown. But it's only a tease, as the budding artist snaps us right back into mechanical mode moments later, not letting us forget that on "Junot," the machines are always in control.
