El Gato #9 Liberty EP
- Words: Derek Grey
- Label: El Otro Mundo
The fourth release on Nor Cal's EOM label sees DJ and producer Christopher Leath unleashing a dark bit of experimental techno. Recalling the halcyon days of labels like Reflective, Apollo and others, when the lines of distinction between genres of techno and ambient were still fuzzy, the Cat merges techno, acid, breaks, ambient and experimental IDM with lo-fi political samples and haunted synths. As unsettling as it is unpretentious, "Liberty" should provoke a reaction wherever it's aired.
