Copenhagen-based label Ectotherm is looking like an increasingly interesting prospect thanks to a string of electronic releases spanning the full electronic belt, and all of them emanating from a sublime, homegrown selection of new talents. After Rune Bagge's excellent jungle-IDM escapades, debut artist Ibon rolls through with a devilish techno punch entitled "Maur", a fast, slick 4/4 bruiser with a myriad of evil bleeps that reminds us of peeps like Regis or Jeff Mills back in the golden days of dance industrialism. The material on the flip ain't too shabby either, though, as "No Cry" enters what we like to refer to as 'a downward spiral of euphoric dread', and "Svever" carries forth a magnificently crunchy swing of beats accompanied by a rather ominous yet meditative swarm of gentler melodies.
