Whilst Token have kept us waiting for their next release - it was some six months ago that they eased out Inigo Kennedy's The Darkest Valentine - the pummelling qualities that permeate through Transantartic from Phase ensure it was entirely a period worth enduring! No stranger to the label with several Token releases under his belt, the title track sets the mood for what to expect with searing chords weaving in and out of the mix amidst a throbbing groove embellished with straight 808 jacks and bubbling metallic undertones. The sudden jolt into an explosion of colour and energy proves to be quite captivating. Elsewhere "Dome Argus" relies on a succession of alien sounds amidst the rough industrial thump to equally impress these ears, whilst Side B is dedicated to the scratched, textural mind altering techno purism of "Plateau Station".
