Having collaborated over the years in several projects, Endless Illusion and brokntoys join forces for a trilogy of EPs to showcase unique talent across the globe. Meeting somewhere across both label's middle grounds, the first volume of Human Abstracts captures an array of international players operating at the fringes of the 'floor'. Colombian duo Vltra Delta Drive kick off the EP with the tense, body-propelled El Complot. Santoine builds up the drama with the uneasy, percussive Transmission. Closing the Aside, Outermost brings his trademark ominous sounds in Mystic River. On the flip, cult favourite Konsistent weaves narcotic grooves on Paranoid Humanoid. After his knockout contribution for Move's launch EP, Black Propaganda brings the EP to a close with the utopian Instrument Of Liberation. Mastered by MA Spaventi.

First of all, this picture disc is just badass. Thank you for making these beauties, SOM!
Exterminate is my favorite here. Immediately reminiscent of "Master Organism" by Dopplereffekt, it hits hard and fast. Vocals are perfect as well.
Now, I'm not the biggest fan of the kind of lyrics on the B-side, especially when live, but Egyptian Lover is a legend and when well recorded in a studio like here, it does add a nice flair to the absolutely wicked track delivered by The Exaltics.
