The Discwoman-affiliated Ciel moves up a gear with this EP for Spectral Sound. While her ‘soft-touch slammers’ approach persists in the little nuggets of modular melody and busy-yet-delicate breakbeats, Why Me? also contains some of the toughest programming that Ciel has given us to date. Cuts like ‘Hipwrecked’ and ‘Why Me?’ come complete with slamming kick drums and potent dub techno atmospherics. Wiretapping pours fuel on the fire when he collaborates on ‘Go Fish’ and ‘Uri’s Song’. File Why Me? next to Umfang and Bruce.
Stock on order, expected soon.
