A long time in the making, Commuter's return to Bass Agenda is a personal album with sweat and soul soaked into every beat, bleep, and bass-line. His attention to detail and care in crafting these tracks really pays off; this is a series of pieces where as much passion has been put into the space between the beats as there has into the beats themselves.
Subtle touches in tracks like ATX and Tylium Digger will keep you coming back for more, whereas elsewhere in tracks like Composite Particles you are drawn into your own cosy stasis as a space aged lullaby washes over you. It is to Commuter's credit that he can build such absorbing Electro atmospheres so efficiently, short tracks that are rewarding to the ear and mind, immediately drawing you in.
French Electro at its finest.

First of all, this picture disc is just badass. Thank you for making these beauties, SOM!
Exterminate is my favorite here. Immediately reminiscent of "Master Organism" by Dopplereffekt, it hits hard and fast. Vocals are perfect as well.
Now, I'm not the biggest fan of the kind of lyrics on the B-side, especially when live, but Egyptian Lover is a legend and when well recorded in a studio like here, it does add a nice flair to the absolutely wicked track delivered by The Exaltics.
