The strong whiff of Orientalism that was present on Walton’s recent Tectonic/Kaizen drops snowballs into a full-length indebted to the sounds of East Asia. Black Lotus floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee. Sinogrime, dubstep and a little techno combine here to make a sound that carries itself with great poise and grace yet is still capable of shelling down the room at a moment’s notice. The likes of ‘Angry Drummer’ and the Wen-featuring ‘Vectors’ are loping square-wave DJ tools that bring to mind the work that the Pennyroyal and Nervous Horizon labels have been putting in of late. Riko Dan guests on ‘No Mercy’, a hell-raising banger that recalls his seminal Rabit collaboration ‘Black Dragons’.
