Manchester’s Bola is Darrell Fitton, whose 1995 debut 12-inch for Skam under that name helped shoot the now-collectible label to underground notoriety. His self-titled Skam EP combined vaguely funk-fueled rhythms with harsh, austere synth textures and almost industrial-grade distortion.Soup, Fitton’s LP debut is an impressive synthesis of the machine-beat ambiance of post-techno with warm, wistful analog soul.

Gescom, the more dancefloor-friendly identity of Sean Booth and Rob Brown, focuses on the more uptempo tendencies of Autechre paired with a harder, rougher, more driving rhythmic edge, Gescom material remains committed to the more adventurous side of electro/techno even as it gives DJs a bit more backbeat to work with.
