AllMusic Review by

Three albums in and the work of Toronto-based producer David Psutka continues to defy genres, considering how his Egyptrixx kicked off as a ghetto-tech project where the guest appearance of DJ Sluggo -- the legendary Dance Mania producer -- made a perfectly logical guest shot. Filled with expansive techno, dark tech-house, serene electro, tribal industrial music, and a whole lot of EDM for loyal Wire magazine readers, the producer's 2013 effort, A/B Til Infinity, remains an album where arguing the overall genre is near impossible. Safe to say that Trentemøller fans will find plenty to love here, as songs such as the title cut and "Disorbita" are all intricate, but not too busy, journeys to the dark side of the dancefloor. With all the sequencers blipping and four-on-the-floor drumbeats, straight-up techno heads get their fill too, and if they're craving less minimalism but with the same great Detroit/Berlin flavor, nocturnal robot miniatures like the key track "Water" or the ominous metal dance dubbed "Adult" will certainly fit the bill. Think of A/B Til Infinity as a more mysterious version of the project's 2011 LP Bible Eyes, and all the meticulous production, overall album flow, and attractive song structure rules still apply, but this one can be parted out much easier, offering up about four 12"s worth of late-night dancefloor intoxication that are still rich enough tracks to hold up for headphone listening.
