Chris Weeks‘ Kingbastard moniker continues to explore robotic electronics and vast sound scrapping through circuitry. This three-track EP further details the artists’ unique ability to craft a succinct collection of decomposed tracks. “Human” is a whiplash of old-school Quinoline Yellow-styled energy—broken beats smash against skewed rhythmic patterns, gentle melodic brushes are counteracted by tectonic plates shifting abruptly as a vocodered “Human” vocal scatters about. This could very well be the soundtrack to an undiscovered, far-off world. “Machine,” on the other hand, features dystopian and atmospheric activity—its drone stuck in a haze, bits and bytes slither in the background as sizzling synth patches sway into and out of focus. “Being” contains the erratic traits of “Human,” however, it unleashes a mechanical layer—slabs of electro, disjointed breaks, and a wandering bassline create for an unusual yet enticing experiment in electronics. Error is the sort of EP that will briefly demolish speakers with its refined prowess, but it can also be just as easily missed among the avalanche of releases if you don’t pay attention.

Error is available on Odd John.
