earlier this year, todd sines inaugurated yore with the slamming techno-funk of the .xtrak release back_up ep and now returns for round two with dont stop. without losing the stripped-down, minimal tech-house funk essence of the .xtrak sound, sines ups the acid-house ante considerably in the new material. the old-school title cut makes an immediately vivid impression by repeating the insistent vocal hook >dont stop<-both command and mantra-over a towering backbeat. >cut to the chase< does exactly that with funky handclaps and syncopated swing, while the b-sides low-riding >unreflect< pairs dropouts and bass-crawling boogie. slightly different in character, the squiggly acid-techno track >quantum mechanics< is as precision-tooled as its title suggests. despite the subtle shift in stylistic emphasis, dont stop offers a splendid complement to the earlier release
