A top experimental label delivers four vinyl-only club tracks.
Split opens with the crunching, cavernous kicks of Tzusing's "Circa Taipei," the Malaysian-Chinese artist laying a needling, high-definition melody and throat singing—last heard on 2017's In A Moment A Thousand Hits—across its surface. "The Whistle" distills the horror inflections of Tzusing's previous output into a more refined but no less unsettling whole. The drums aren't as explosive, but all the action occurs in the track's foreground. High-pitched strings slide across the beat, joined later by cacophonous pig squeals. M.E.S.H. picks up where the rowdier tracks from 2017's Hesaitix left off: "Atemlos" is squirming, glitchy reggaeton, while the more intricately rhythmic "Festival Circuit" is a twisting techno stomper through which sparse, dystopian synths occasionally cut through.
