The second volume of Autochromata, deep techno experiments with a particular focus on exploring the textural and tonal possibilities of low bitrates, alternative sampling rates and other deliberately lossy setups. This volume contains three pieces, like the first volume, that are anchored by hypnotic rhythms and sustained bass notes that intertwine with the waves of processed chords and drones. The first two tracks are notably more energetic and developed than the previous De-Sat tracks, with the opener sounding remarkably close to something from Static Physics, while the third returns to that monochromatic minimalism again. Between the two is a watery dub that connects both ends of the album's spectrum.
