If you've been paying close attention to music release on techo's fluid margins, you may already be familiar with the work of Adam Longman Parker AKA Afriqua. He's released a fair amount of material over the last few years, serving up cuts that variously doff a cap to tech-house, techno and booming British bass music. This first EP for R&S Records is similarly hard to pin down. Parker begins with the tumbling music box melodies, subtle Afrobeat touches and rock solid rhythms of "Aleph", before mixing '90s modem noises and enveloping chords on hazy ambient piece "Sent". Over on side B, he serves up a dreamy and melodious take on dub techno ("Opferator" [sic]) and a Motor City influenced chunk of deep house/tech-house fusion (the rather brilliant "Thanksgiving").
