    2. VARIOUS - The Fifth Column (4 x LP) (Repress Pre Order: TBC)

      The Fifth Column is a secretive resistance movement that strikes from within. This album is its manifesto. From cavernous, tribal experiments in dub vernacular to tense, tweaked out soundscapes to glittering atmospheres refracted through sheets of furiously inventive amens, each of these sixteen tunes stands on its own merits while reflecting a different facet of our sound; never stuck in the Learn More

      Released in 1993, The Technology Ep appeared on the start of a re-establishment of electro music and a beginning for the Direct Beat label.
