Cyclic Defrost Reviews 'The Strain Of Origin'

Cyclic Defrost has reviewed our recent free collaborative compilation ‘The Strain Of Origin – Feral Media vs LoFly’, noting that the album “represents something genuinely new amongst the Australian electronic music community”.

Reviewer Chris Downton singles out some of his favourite cuts, commenting “If Vorad Fils’ reworking of Mr Maps’ ‘Til The Money Outruns Us’ leans towards the wonky LA hiphop styles of the Brainfeeder label with its gently glittering fusion of phased synth chords and spidery, off-centre beats, ii’s ‘Regular Giant Prawns Mix’ of Joel Edmondson’s ‘Giant’ sees things venturing out towards the dancefloor, anchoring itself around a throbbing minimal techno pulse and dry, rattling snare accents.”
