Rolling, precision-engineered, dub-soaked broken-beat mechanics from London’s sought-after Well Street imprint - the third (and for my money, strongest) in the label’s back catalogue.  Who is Robert Fleck?  A mystery, but they feel like the imprint’s secret weapon in solidifying their own advanced, very UK, dub-techno aesthetic.  A-side gives tight, acutely crafted percussion on top of rolling waterbed dub-chords and bags of swing on ‘Echo Chamber’, followed by ‘Set Point’ that fine-tunes the previous elements into a tighter broken techno nip ’n tuck.  Flip over for ‘Soft Focus’, a spacious, half-time expanse of sub-bass tremors and ricocheted chords, whilst Gasometric Run dives deeper for a hefty dollop of late-night dub-techno haze, inviting the obvious Rhythm & Sound / Deepchord comparisons but only to its credit.  (NM)
