Head Technician, 2016

There's a patch of my brain that lights up when something is off kilter in a certain way. An artist can seem to have virtually everything the wrong way 'round, and yet I'll latch on to it. Zones slow acid house is a great example. It's too linear, too sharply defined to be proper ambient music, but it's way too torpid to be dance music. It's music out of context. The songs seem like be about one-third faster. It's asif someone inadvertently slowed the MIDI-clock down. Perhaps, though, If we had more hints as to where the Head Technician was aiming, it might actually lose a touch of mysterious aura; regain its context.
