The Broken Robot crew continue to melt down the boundaries with these two distinctive 4/4 originals from Israeli duo Split & Jaxta. "Species" is a timeless example of dancefloor hypnosis; tying the tendrils between psy trance and tech house, it's peppered with crisp mind-locking flourishes while retaining a solid, bass-laden kick drum groove. "Nu Normal" continues this deep tech motif by way of a weighty-but-subtle swing that's as deep as it is heavy. With less psychedelic flourishes and sparkles, focus is kept firmly on the rich rhythmic properties. Finally Broken Eye gets wild on the remix tip with a rub that wouldn't have sounded amiss on Lot49 or Bedrock 10 years ago when Meat Katie and Dylan Rhymes were ruling the roost, only it's been carved with the sharpest modern production knives.
