Kiasmos/Rival Consoles 65/Milo
- Words: Chris Sabbath
- Label: Erased Tapes
- XLR8R Rating: 7.5/10
Three prodigies from the tech-house world surface to the top of this shiny gem from the Erased Tapes crew. First up are two tracks of sheer bass and pulsating stomp from the boys in Kiasmos—the new side-project from Ólafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen—that find the two traveling deep into minimal techno. "65" thuds with a hard kick not felt since Daft Punk first brought the house down with their Homework album, while "Walled" is dressed with a tropical garnish of trance-y steel drums. On the flip is Ryan Lee West's Rival Consoles, whose three tracks sound like prehistoric Nintendo with its dubbed-out bump and 8-bit trills.
