Desroi cuts his unrivaled skill to combine power and pace into four new tracks again. “Vermillion Border” draws from a dazed palette of concise and forceful sounds and thus raises the bar on his lasting run of EPs.

Tightly oscillating and resoundingly austere, the EP has its moments of stormy brutality that punctuates the mesmeric synth cycles to inspiriting elation. “Bright Blood” and “Gauze Covers Flaw” appear tethered at the base by cavernous low end and heady drum machine programming which drives the work.

Closing track “Empty Eye” might present Desroi’s most funky work to date, rounding the EP off with a single warping synth motif shifting through sonic spheres.
