Duran Duran Duran aka Ed Flis is in the middle of a resurgence. The US producer, who first made a name during the break core scene of the mid-00s, released his first album in seven years in 2017 and now he follows it with this EP on French label Tripalium. While "Terror City" borrows from break core's shattered, splintered percussion, it is more restrained, as he lays down a scuffled, wiry rhythm. There is another surprise on "Sinking About You"; Flis works eerie textures and upbeat chords around a stepping groove and the kind of gasping, growling bass that sounds like it was recycled from a Basic Channel record.
