Transformer Man Groove Based Technology: Part 1
- Words: Ron Nachmann
- Label: Re:Connect
Producer Ed Budd debuts as T Man with a simmering three-track EP of electro-breaks fusion. Wading in aqueous electronics, the rhythm of his a-side, "Invalid Command," emerges from its breakdowns with epic basslines and whooshing synths. The flip's slightly more downtempo "Evil Eye" and "Breaks in Disguise" keep it in crouch-and-growl mode, contrasting the other tune's vicious spring. Great start.
