This is the third and final part of the Fixxy series with Norfolk’s Ed signing off with four supernatural expeditions into purest electro-foraging of the kind which takes the original blueprint and runs off cackling into galaxies new. ‘Styge’ is stuttery space-funk with UR-flavoured strings, drenched in the atmosphere of warm melancholy and other-worldly beauty which marks the whole EP. ‘Charly’ is another ethereal beauty which somehow recalls Sabres Of Paradise/early 2 Lone Swordsmen electro excursions. ‘For The Haters’ plants the Dirty Diggers’ rap over haunting heartbeat pulses while voles masturbate. ‘Trapeze’ is best summed by the blurb’s assertion that it leaves the listener, ‘slackjawed to witness an imperial sunrise of such imposing strings that it loses track of what it’s saying entirely’. As with music of great power and poignancy, it ultimately scores because it doesn’t take itself too seriously leaving the pleasure centres wide open to be seduced and hitting double-hard. Wholeheartedly recommended.
