Nathan Micay fell asleep in the schnee and awoke in the shvitz. This is his first offering for the ESP Institute. Side A’s 'Never Rhythm Game' is a bubbling cauldron of acid worms, almost seven steady minutes of liquid squelch and bleep that rolls over an assortment of boom-boom kicks and claps, all glued together by droning strings and soaring feedback modulation. Aimed for peak time, this big-room monster builds on a major chord and carries us to that perfect rave apex, functioning as a pivot from where the witty DJ might steer into any subsequent direction. Side B’s 'Team Player' is equally poignant, yet to contrast its optimistic predecessor, Nathan constructs a dark mechanical narrative that summons influence from a distant sci-fi metropolis—sophisticated metallic rhythms that sound less polished as they do scrubbed with steel wool—led by a seductive robot who chants degenerate dancing instructions. These two songs will oil your engine and grease your gears.
