The newly-minted Resilience Label opens up proceedings with its promising inaugural release from eccentric techno duo Montalk. The four tracks which comprise the 'Foundations' EP present a precisely crafted, yet psychedelic take on body-assaulting industrial techno. Opener 'CLCK' sets the tone with aggressive peaking kicks and crushed machine drones which threaten to subsume all in their path. 'An Infinite Loop' adopts a sneering acid bass which fuzzes out in delays to suggest a luxurious synthetic wash by its close, while '54562' similarly overturns expectations as crawling subs gradually give way to more propulsive, Helm-esque percussion clangs. The pick is 'Nocturnal', where macho drums and an ethereal, spiralling backdrop manage to pull all of the EP's tricks at once.
