This extended fit of arrhythmic bit-crush, courtesy of Mouse on Mars' Jan St. Werner, is a lot like listening to someone make an IDM martini James Bond-style for seven and a half minutes: scuffing beats breaking and rattling against each other; a kooky, wobbly synth squeak; and choppy, tagging bass. Accomplished but unexceptional unless maybe the time is outta joint and it's actually still 1998. Is it?
