Operator – Dark Circle EP [GNOSIS003] // Music Previews

19 August 2014

Operator, aka Rich Jones, returns for the third outing on his label, Gnosis Records, continuing the theme of elemental, hypnotic techno. The four tracks here range from the rolling, grungy, percussive heaviness of Going There, to the melodic escapism of Revolt On Titan.

Title track Dark Circle, is a textured, hypnotic peak time groove, while Grid 9‘s quirky and tripped out synth textures provide the psychedelic flavours. Below you can check out the previews on SoundCloud coming soon on limited 12″ vinyl and at selected digital retailers.
