Steve Bug's third album of minimal sounds operates somewhere in the ether between house and techno -- a place where rigid percussion bumps, grinds, and shuffles to a dirty, low-end rumble. The sensuousness of the title is delivered by way of sly melodic touches which ride into the grooves on the unrelenting waves of bass. Whether it's the slippery keyboard motif that decorates the wobbling acidics of the cheekily titled "Purple Brain" or the robotic dog barks which heckle the body-popping loops of "Mixed up Moods," it is these well-dispersed elements, small flashes of science, that define this album of next-century jack tracks.
