After hearing Tom Laws’ twisted take on contemporary techno for the first time back in 2009, Secret Cinema kept an ear out for this talented British producer. A year after Laws’ appearance on Gem Sampler 2, a full EP finally appears on Gem Records!
The Alien Pornography EP consists of three cutting edge tracks two of which are best described as dark atmospheric techno stompers ´Alien Pornography´ and Elemental and one slightly warmer sounding gem ´Paranoid Beauty´. All three sport that unique slightly out there quality techno sound that Gem is proudly known for! An essential autumn release…
