The second Lobster Theremin white label comes from the mysterious Australian producer, Daze. Making his release debut with four original tracks, Daze covers varying strains of tough melodic house, ferocious acid and old school breakbeat, taking us on an experiential journey into the heart of British rave culture via Detroit-influenced electro and rough and ready tape jams.
Opening with an overdriven call to action, Drag Ball traverses the lines between synth-driven house and scorched techno, pulsating with cracked clap-snare derivatives and soothing yet slightly paranoid Juno lines.
Untitled signals the beginning of the generally classic slant of the EP, channeling hair-raising acid lines under some crunchy electro drum programming. But it's the soaring synths that set it apart, floating aloft the bubbling madness below.
On the flip there are two mixes of title track Lips.. The '94 Original DAT Dub having been culled raw from the source providing a deeper and less immediate take on an euphoric modern classic. The revised '07 Skyline Mix sees the mix brightened and pumped up for serious systems, with the extra-layered pads making that euphoric mid-section feel like ten pills rather than two.
