Substak returns to Recycled Plastics for his third release in our Bedroom Compost series - a feat only held by two other artists currently (Zander One and Axs) - although INDEX is sure to be anything but Substak's final word on our imprint.

Having traversed abstract rhythmic pulses on Beatless, and low-frequency submersible exploration on No Sense, Index sees Substak at perhaps his most straightforward at RP, employing minimal techno propulsion that recalls things like Reinhard Voigt's Pentax alias at Profan, Basic Channel and some of the weirder things at Rephlex. While rhythm is the focus of Index, Substak uses it almost melodically, presenting sections of drum programming that are tangled up in knots, as other tracks feel as if they are physical vessels that Substak is slowly filling with pitch-altering chemicals. Aspects of Index can be found in other Substak records, but (as usual for his work) this release feels like a microscoping zooming-in of a small curve or shadow on a much larger universe of sound. More like a study of a singular object, rather than a summation of multiple ideas. Substak's sound is in constant motion, and yet feels incredibly focused and deliberate - careful, even - across tracks whose modest runtimes trick the ears into blissful massage and hypnosis, giving the impression of exceptionally longer pieces.

**Dedicated listeners would be wise to pick up the limited edition CD-R of Index, which includes two additional Substak cuts (Index 1.7 & 1.8) that introduce acid lines over the percussive establishment of the first six Index tracks, as well as a Coppice Halifax remix of Index 1.6 that reshapes the source material into a mid-fi dancefloor monster.
