Eight dark’n’moody EBM-/industrial-like tracks by London based Ikpathua (one half of Dorylus, who have released with Bokhari amongst others) between poltergeist-paranoia, straying in haunted houses and dreaming of ghosts’n’goblins.
»Presented in a shadowy, ultra-minimalist black-and-white scenario, the video shows a male dancer moving in and out of rhythm along with ›Tape Paranoia‹’s delicately balanced ambiance and subtle percussive work. […] No doubt, Kunz’s elegantly-crafted visuals fit Ikpathua’s graceful soundscapes like a glove.«
»There are lovely, sparse atmospheres and warm textures but there are also some nice dancefloor moments too. I especially like ›Swamp‹ which kicks off the B-Side. Slow and brooding, we’ve got a solid rhythm with half-heard dubby delays ricocheting off around your head.«
