Six succinct tracks of dense and seductively destructive electronic iconoclasm from Seattle mainstay Frankie Crescioni, filled to the brim with the zeitgeist of stoic frustration. This release drags you into a world of refined, riotous catharsis in its first moments, from the boisterous, percussion-laden sternum thumper of Chestbound Disarray to the Kafkaesque electro of L.A.W.D.O.G. and beyond, it's as labyrinthine as it is impactful. The perfect soundtrack to your basement party/exasperated nighttime drive/rebellion, on cassette or computer, in joy or in anger. A withering polemic of synthesizers and overdriven drums.

I've always had time for techno producers who aren't cowed by the tyranny of the kick drum and with "Traded Structures" Apartment Fox has delivered a masterclass in the fine art of left-field, EDM abstraction. If you prefer your dance music to wear hobnailed boots, look elsewhere; these tracks, each a vibrant melange of textures and timbres, are designed to beguile not bang. Niccolo Brown
