Cestrian (aka Ali Renault) lands on Mechatronica for the Berlin label's 10th release with a remarkably wide electro-driven EP, exploring different rims of the genre from the transporting melodic peripheries and weirder edges, to the raw core. Two hypnotizing journeys in "Gradients" and "Rake & Pikel" make up the A-side along with the frenzied styles of "Cat Strain". "Speak & Spell" blasts open the flip with an anthemic groove and potent basslines, before "The Weir" rounds off the EP in heavy and atmospheric fashion, concluding an essential electro record - for the mind and for the floor.
