Birmingham upstart Velum Break strides onto the Analogical Force label with the wildly diverse Cloaca EP. Dabbling with drum and bass, breakbeat and electro and somehow managing to sound not quite like any of those genres. The title track takes the snarling bassline and icy chords of early techstep d&b and rephrases it over a chunky IDM drum track, while ‘Utopia Cape Stretch’ posits lush wavering synth washes over a smattered broken beat. Cloaca is a brazenly confident and strikingly unique debut outing on the label, more fittingly described as future club music as imagined in a late eighties sci-fi movie.
