Debut solo 12" on London's venerable Surface label

"Orphx's Rich Oddie presents his solo debut; two tracks of instinctively rugged Industrial Techno derangements. For over twenty years Rich has been involved with a number of musical projects, from Ambient to Industrial Techno and Punk, essentially consolidating these disparate strands in a potent fusion here for like minded Techno experimentalists Surface Records. A-side is a bruising deconstruction of 4/4 standards, f**king off "normal" arrangements to go hell-for-leather with explosive white noise, galloping kicks and abrasive Dub chords. B-side 'Driftwork' is more reserved, strafing thru a first section of coruscating Dub Techno chords and monotone bass to a droning ambient conclusion" - Boomkat

"Punishing techno structures from Rich Oddie, who makes his solo trip aside from his Orphx cohorts through rugged industrial landscapes of dissent. 'Refraction'/'Driftwork' fuses together the lessons learnt by Oddie through the techno, electro, industrial, ambient and psychedelic time-zones that he has explored with previous projects, yet puts the focus more on dark surfaces of drone-filled intent and dubbed-out manipulation" -

"Gorgeous and dark techno. You expect this to be deep from the submarine artwork and this 12" doesn't disappoint. Driftwork starts with digital thunder and carries the storm through compelling depths. Sublime sound design on this release. While everyone was else was getting giddy with Rrose and the last days of Sandwell District, a few proper heads had the sensitivity and luck to find this gem and recognize that they had found the best dark'n'deep techno track of 2011 in Driftwork" - Occidental
