Australian Michael Ozone, currently operating out of Melbourne, is an artist embodying the purest form of absurdist energy. This debut offering, is but of a fraction of the entertainment we can expect as his career zig-zags forward. "Perfect Systems" is a tuff native track based on the idea of man-made tools, technology and borrowed languages. Imagine failed cities overtaken by jungle life as you're swallowed by this utopian island groove. A not-so-distant relative on side-b, "Hetrotopia" leads us on a nomadic journey, exploring vast new landscapes and uncharted territories. References to New Beat and Horror soundtracks are apparent, but no matter what fantasies we infer from Ozone's music, his talent for crafting such fiction is a welcome addition to the ESP institute.
