In addition to having a fantastic name, Electrocado also make some fantasic music. Elements of many genres are clear in this album – psytrance, ambient, electro and glitch to name but a few. This mix never feels uncontrolled though, and if anything it gives the album fantastic breadth of sound. For example, the track Derping Hamstain starts from chaos but ends with a relaxed downtempo vibe. The Lugubrious Frog, on the other hand, is a straight up psybient track. If you are a fan of artists like Shpongle, then this is definitely one for you!

This intricate glitch release is one that demands your full attention. A wide variety of effects and samples are used in this EP which give it such a lush, thick sound. Although I have never been a huge fan of the glitch genre, this release is highly listenable and certainly something I could see myself playing over and over again.
Signal Path have set about releasing 4 free EPs for each of the seasons, with this release coinciding with the start of summer. It will be interesting to see how the idea develops – Signal Path are certainly one to keep an eye on.
