|2.||"NOYFB" (Straight 2 Tape edit) (6:03)|
Having previously impressed with a trickle of fine EPs for L.I.E.S and Exotic Dance Records, man of mystery Person of Interest pops up on the ever-reliable Clone Royal Oak. Lead cut "NOYFB" is an intriguing proposition, fusing as it does the rhythmic swing of UK garage, the spacey futurism of classic Detroit techno, and the loved-up ethos of early US deep house. The latter two influences shine through on the alternative "Straight To Tape" version, while "Pareidolia" mixes jaunty analogue electronics with the low-end throb more readily associated with British-made house and techno. A fine EP comes to a close with "Carmen", a particularly woozy, cymbal-heavy late night excursion.
