    It's been almost a year since we heard from legendary techno scientist Mike Hulme on U&A. He'd been busy holed up in his MADLAB somewhere north of Watford with a Chernobyl-sized phalanx of modular circuitry until we broke him out.

    Team U&A dusted him down from his boffinry and took him to Scotland where the impish Wicker-men plied him full of class A's and left him to dance around stone circles until the chimes of autumn snapped him out of his stupour.

    On returning, he downed his specs, and came through with two MASSIVE slices of ELECTRO-TECHNO in 'Set The Controls' and ' Sweet Inspiration'. The former is a perfectly formed grind-fest with super-subs and pin-prick-precise techno-wobblings, whilst on 'Sweet Inspiration' you can hear more than a hint of the Chemicals at their most psychedelic (I'm guessing the Class A's had begun to take hold ...).
