I felt compelled to do this review to balance my recent review of Photek's latest offering "Ku:Palm".
This is probably(along with the single "T'Raenon")the best thing Photek ever did. This e.p. was released at a time when Drum'n Bass was at a crossroads. It had recently "gone overground", but with that new-found popularity came pressure from the major record companies that were becoming involved, to make it more accessible to the 4-to the-floor crew that were starting to show an interest. Alex Reese had released the classic "Pulp Fiction" around a year before with paired-down beats (so-called "two-step")and Jonny L had just released another influential track, "Piper" with an incredible snare sound that was to influence D&B for the next couple of years.
This e.p.represents Photek's challenge to the two-step status quo.
Of course breakbeat and D&B DIDN'T go down this route, probably for two reasons- 1/ The pressure from the majors, which Photek also succumbed to eventually. 2/Most producers at this time weren't capable of doing anything like this.
It's hard to impress the effect that these tracks had at the time- they were so far in advance of anything that had come before. A classic.

Photek ‎- The Hidden Camera 13 Mar 2013
By scoundrel - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Photek, one of the legendary names in drum'n'bass, crossed into the mainstream with THE HIDDEN CAMERA single, his first release for a major label. It carries all his trademarks: you can hear the darkness creep through "K.J.Z." while the percussion rattles and snares around the melody hovering around the periphery. The title track starts with some sad piano chords, before moving into a mysterious, bass-plucked atmosphere. The "Static Mix" pushes up the rhythm from jazzy to jungly, though crisp and minimal, and "Hybrid" continues this feel with a jittery energy. Smile, the camera is watching.

Easily digestible young era IDM EP won't have much impact nowadays but should remain relevant within designated demographic.
