Umwelt is back on Midnight Shift, with another scorching 5-track EP designed to be listened in continuity. Ascending chorals, acidic swirls and horrific echoes rise above a mash of abrasive, caustic electro/breakbeat chaos with shapeshifting moods. Ambient track 'Gate of Nothingness' echoes and feeds back into 'Fear On The Dark Planet' with its arpeggiated refrain. Umwelt again at his prime.

The unstoppable force of Umwelt carries on and crushes all in its path. 100 Seconds to Midnight is the pick of the bunch - an absolute peak time dancefloor destroyer that hearkens back to the early 2000s with its incessant acid line, hands on the air breakdowns and that low end throb that hits you in the feels.
