Jamie Teasdale, best known as Kuedo, makes a timely return with the sci­fi designed ‘Assertion of a Surrounding Presence’ ­ his first solo release proper since 2012, and the 2nd issue on his fledgling Knives label after J.G. Biberkopf’s ‘Ecologies’. His celebrated production style remains anterior to modern dance music and electronica, largely by virtue of unbending futurist focus and careful attention to detail.

Here flanked by collaborations with erstwhile Vex’d partner, Roly Porter, plus Berlin’s Phoebe Kiddo a.k.a. Mind:Body:Fitness, and Canada’s Egyptrixx, the next chapter in Kuedo’s odyssey expands his sci­fi dimensions with ever sharper contouring gradients, and hyperreal spatialisation structured around recalibrated footwork, drill and techno engines.

Scaling from the vertigo-­inducing opener to a finale of panicked gamelan drama, ‘Assertion of a Surrounding Presence’ renders Kuedo’s most affective, elaborate reflection of a nowness, divining a metaphysical, cybernetic zeitgeist in the vaulted reverb structures of his Ghost In The Shell nod, ‘Eyeless Angel Intervention’, or the trance fluid T­2000 techstep momentum of ‘Boundary Regulation’, whilst pursuing more tangled emotions and ethereal sensations in the recursive, hyaline gamelan cadence of ‘Border State Collapse’ and ‘Event Tracking Across Populated Terrain’.
