FNOOB DiGiTAL's first release for 2019 comes deep, dark and dancefloor-ready from Detroit-area techno producer ADEGE. With one previous release on Amalgm8 Music and DJ sets on Fnoob Techno Radio's Amnesia Haze show, Adege brings to us now four new, dubby, slow-building midtempo tracks recalling later Drumcode releases as well as Dubfire's more subdued material.

Track 1, "Dark Circles", starts with a bassy, 126 BPM kick and tight, crisp hi-hats over a throbbing, compressed field of low frequency noise, expanding into a filter-swept, modulated field of what might be alien transmissions and a journey through layer upon layer of grooving percussion and pads with just a touch of distortion. A breakdown in the middle inches into polyrhythm as triplet hi-hats play against synthetic congas going into the final drop.

Track 2, "Deep Space" brings us a percussively filtered synth loop and distantly reverberating, filtered square wave blips, a pulsing bass and spiky synth chords, spilling forth an expanding number of layers of echo and noise, divided by sections of what might be saxhorns or overdriven synthesizer.

Track 3, "Drunk On Drums", as the title suggests, is a bit more drum machine driven and like a DJ tool in its atonality, albeit one that is still defaulting to the characteristic heavy reverb and echo permeating all of this release. The deep, 808ish kick still permeates here, as well as the overdriven synth pads.

The final track, "Never Say Never", starts with a typical 4/4 kick/snare pattern giving way to a growling, filter-swept, ominous pulse wave pad, barely within the audible sub-bass frequency range, upon which layers of sampled vocals, percussion and synth pad manifest.

All in all, this is a release whose layered complexity stands up well to multiple listens.
