Adorned with new artwork while maintaining the same crushing impact, "Mu EP," a four way split between battering electronic artists, is available again after spending much of the past two years out of print. Anne-James Chaton, Steven Porter, and Sawlin also contribute tracks that round out the release, but Ancient Methods starts the 12" with some truly infernal techno by introducing rhythmic patterns and huge swatches of sound just to decimate them to ruins in a truly impressive way. Other highlights include the cut by Anne-James Chaton that is like a book reading that gets trapped inside a bevy of delay units and end ups sounding like a feverish slur of syllables. In its entirety, "Mu EP" is a hypnotic and often psychedelic journey. - Ryan Potts, Experimedia
New Japanese imprint 10 Label made a great impact with this record originally released in 2011. Originally limited to a very small number of copies, here we proudly present a full and much needed re-release with new centre art. A1's Ancient Methods' 'Confused Voltage' cut batters the senses through decaying electro and industrialised beats. Savagely modern electronic body music. A2's 'Deed' from Steven Porter (as conducted by 10 label bosses Katsunori Sawa and Yuji Kondo) unfurls with growling, compressed gear. Uniquely ambiguous and Essential work from the guys who had recent, well received works on Semantica and Weevil Neighbourhood. French sound-poet Anne-James Chaton is back with another killer track (B1's 'Evenement27') after his previously collaborative release with Alva Noto on Raster-Noton. Finally, this fantastic EP is topped off with the supreme industrial heaviness of 'Painfull' by Sawlin - otherwise known for his work on the enigmatic Vault Series.
