Review from Boomkat -
Paul Blackford reclaims the UK Bass tag with a trio of speedy, Detroit-styled electro weapons for Central Processing Unit. Darkside fiends will be all over the Bane-samples from The Dark Knight Rises dropped over the snappy, sub-heavy electro minimalism of 'The League Of Shadows', whilst the flipside tracks come off like some Rephlexian bootybass hybrid. Solid session.
Review from Bleep -
Central Processing Unit issue another brilliant slab of electro, the next in their binary catalogue number series, courteousy of Paul Blackford. Title track ‘The League Of Shadows’ meshes feather-light drum patterns recalling Drexciya with squelching acid bass and an unsettling vocoded sample in a way which feels classic without being clichéd. Elsewhere on ‘Proteus’ and ‘Robotix’ it is Blackford’s continued deftness of touch which lifts the EP from mere nostalgia, with vintage electro drums feeling weightless and skittering around like IDM at its finest.
