Manuel Anós returns to Mote Evolver with this punchy follow-up to 2012’s ‘Distane’. On side A, ‘Arcade’ drops rough, rattling techno that’s so full of beans it doesn’t need even a particle of melody, while ‘Surface’ twists around a solitary keyboard sample, and doesn’t stop until you feel dizzy. Flipside ‘Intern’ counters with brooding but fast-paced dub techno, and ‘Somewhere’ throws marching synths down a tunnel, getting a faint echo back. A 20-minute workout for your sound system.
