Quietly building up interest as a fount of ill-omened, grubby techno-trance instead of drifting away in the drain of most hollow progressives, Chab comes out with a double blow for one of Lightning Records' sublabels, Tripomatic (some will also recognize the track from Anthony Pappa's Nubreed compilation). Reportedly coming from an associate of Moogwai, this would make for a darker solo maneuver. With a menacing trough of the usual sequencer scowls and pitch-black, totalitarian mood shifts, listening to it on a loop is like being unable to come out of an amyl comedown.
