Tessela and Truss come back with their second EP as Overmono, out via XL. Arla II is a visceral and invigorating listen, pulling no punches as it lurches around between techno, garage, Bomb Squad-style hip-hop and other hardcore dance styles. Though the appetite for repurposing old genres recalls the likes of Special Request and Lone - ‘Powder Dry’, with its muted-yet-pounding drums and gently euphoric keyboards, is the sort of hauntological rave track that Simon Reynolds would fawn over - the pair are not afraid to push out into uncharted waters either. Take ‘16 Steps’, an eerie cut built from looped claps, flushes of low bass and a curious vocal sample.

  2. 2 Telephax 030 4:48
  3. 3 HR3 1:04
