Despite the Hoofwerk project sounding obviously like a reference to the Footwork style of dance music, I hadn’t really made any tracks that would fit neatly inside that particular idiomatic box prior to this EP (aside from Suffering, Misery, Death on Everything Aligned). So, with Medusa/Nyx, I decided to change that. I’m particularly fond of this pair of 160bpm bangers, and feel I did a decent job of putting my spin on the style. The speech sampling of a Sun Ra interview on Nyx was perhaps a premonition of Moon Of Beautiful Risings, to come several years later.
