Cliques - the collaborative project of Hamish Dixon and George Nicholas - fuse rolling techno momentum with a sound system focus. They present the Dotted EP. Title track "Dotted" sees Cliques take their sparse productions to the limit, focusing on intricate drum programming, an intense bassline and a tightly wound melody. "Untitled" features skittering hats and bassline giving way to a melancholic breakdown. Dro Carey remixes "Dotted" and mutates the melody of the original even further, the broken drum patterns playfully switching up and releasing the tension. Finally, "8th" rounds off the EP with swung drums and murky atmospheres.
