ASC celebrates the 10th release on Auxiliary by unleashing the second installment of the Programme series to the masses, continuing the sci-fi landscape themes of the first EP with four impeccably crafted new tracks. Stolen Memories – Sharp, jagged mech stabs drive this swirling slice of intergalactic half-step, intricately developed with a smooth atmospheric synth work that really shouldn't gel – not so when ASC is at the controls, the mood shifting expertly throughout. Impasse sees ASC take a blissful journey through 80's electro-laced vistas, set to a purposeful bass tone, layering a myriad of effects as it progresses with a curious off-beat backdrop adding a truly unique edge. Confined Spaces switches to a deep techno vibe with lush echoed kicks making this one a true mover, laced with a collage of synths and FX to die for.
Polymer is a uniquely crafted piece with erratic keys playfully traversing each other creating a blippy melody, punctuated with a subtle vocal sample you won't soon forget.
