Rei Loci Faction EP
- Words: Ron Nachmann
- Label: Seventh Sign
Scottish producer Craig Allen offers up a simmering and unique interpretation of the Detroit sound. The title track runs warm, punchy synth tones, singeing strings and loads of synthetic quack noises over a slight, spitting drum pattern. The flip's "No Neutral Surface" and "Lacuna" are more classically Motor City techno, but Allen's chaos-teasing keyboard work keeps them from sounding too derived.
