Cited as a constant reminder of parties gone by, referencing the styles of acid house and Belgian New Beat of the late 80s, Real TermsEP CGC does not identify as a record for the masses packed together on the euphoric, sticky floors of a nightclub.

The third release from electronic outfit Real Terms on Soft Verse Label is their baby from a summer of isolated thoughts in our unusual and odd world. These thoughts transcended into tales, and those tales into music, and now we find ourselves with a sombre story of grave change and uncomfortableness conceived in the centre of Jesmond.

Blatant, dulcet and shrouded in existential thought – this emotional pandemic is wrapped into techno form.” Lewis Thompson himself explains. Slickly produced, the distorted voice throughout wraps up each track with the notion that it was hard to recognise the truth during these stark times of the last seven months. Industrial opener There Won’t Be Another gives a vision of dripping pipes in an echoing corridor and an unnerving feeling of being trapped. A Flood Devours England possesses a rave beat and Underworld influences, and New 2020 goes further back into the past with its German retro effects. Not the easiest listen, but bloody brilliant.
