Roma Zuckerman is etching out an international presence for himself by way of his recent involvement in Nina Kraviz’s трип label. Appearing on the label’s past three compilations, the Russian producer now delivers a premiere EP of his solo work, also dropped on Kraviz’s imprint. ‘That Present Terminal’ is a powerful debut release, a body of sinister techno and noise production with off kilter drum patterns and dark, pitched down vocal loops . ‘So What (I Feel Dirty)’ is around 140 bpm with a relentless kick drum and unsettling synth line, featuring sampled drilling sounds deployed sparingly but to great effect. Similarly, ‘Years’ opens with a twisted interrogation that carries us into the body of the track, where the textured noises both sound and torment in a manner reminiscent of computer error message alerts, a tone haunting (albeit banal) in an age of technological dominance.
