Fri, 14 Jun Post a comment J. As a dj, he has travelled from Asia to Europe, both Americas and a constant tour of the United States. Ahh Codega Music Incl. Perpetual Rhythms. Themonolith EP.

It starts with a kick, snare and the weak sinewave tone of an emergency broadcast signal. A rattling drum loop seems to navigate a steady yet precarious path, like a ball-bearing rolling through a Rube Goldberg machine. Ordonez's stern baritone—he's making some indistinct accusation—echoes in muddy waves.

Bristly synth stabs brush through the bass. That might all sound chaotic, but Ordonez organises "What Else You Do"'s bits in a discreet hierarchy, and each element is distinct enough in the mix to feel essential. Other tracks are even knottier. Increasingly dense layers of synth, organs and bass follow, but the focal point, a triumphant synth lead, only emerges from the scrum after three minutes.

There's an astringent depth, too, to "Jaws Of Life," whose gristly lead lines grind against each other, one never quite overpowering the other.

Fans of the early Tetrode era may also get some joy from " Fifty Fifty," though Ordonez draws lightly from familiar techniques. Though the bass and keys unspool in catchy phrases, the backdrop reveals, variously, another indistinct vocal, the continuous flow of a water fountain and a spectral B-movie warble. I Feel Raw.
