Barely out of his teens, Northampton lad Ed Macfarlane makes an impressive debut on Precinct. The Strobe Light starts off with a fat glitchy groove, building gently before it tumbles into a sweeping chord progression driven along by a burbling bassline and breathy pads to create a panoramic, rushy feel, not a million miles from the MFA / Nathan Fake sound. B sider Lets Split Up jacks and bleeps for all its worth, whilst Bourgeoisie employs broken beats and electronic atmospherics to round of an assured package from a young UK talent.
