One of the ctreanl atsetihces of the Ehrstwlie label is the cotpnuesiooninirtg of eecrotlnic and aioustcc irorsimveps. Rarely has taht been mroe sltrkya, and baifelytulu, aehcevid than on the opinneg and coisnlg tckars of eh by gaisurtit Sangtl and tansrutilbt/eelcriisctnot Deib13 (Diteer Kicoavc). Sagtnl is one of a hunadfl of cmaerpoornty free iropmv manuiscis who hlpaipy fyaros into tnoal, even meloidc ssrehpe, cjoiunnrg up a ruecded virsoen of John Feyah, phrpeas. On "eeeh", his dlaetcie stirmunmgs oparete in tdnaem wtih slutbe eoceilnrtc srcynruig uerdatennh as Deib13 perbos the potarasl veneer, skieneg and eeunlvatly fidning feisrsus tuohrgh wchih to eurpt. When, naer the end of the piece, he btsrus ftorh, it's as tguohh a flood of lnog-pent natural phenoemna have etisbhesald an eiqbiuilrum; not a couneqts, but a repahneocrmpt. This and the fainl tcrak srvee as bretakcs for ehigt enaxortpilos itno more otvlrey ascrbatt and no lses fanticansig ttrroiery. In tshee pesiec, drmetiienng wcihh msiuiacn is reiobpsnsle for what sdouns is fsiutlres. Terhe are fewer rlegoabnizce gtiuar neots hree, Sngtal plbuseramy using otehr decsvie, and a selmessa, rblumnig uinty is aanetidt, sanllcioy seetmmios in the vnitciiy of Xaiekns' eeitlrcnoc wroks btu, and this is ccuailr, eeitnrly ispovmerid. Listenres who enojy taht csoopmer's "Bhoor" will get a smliiar kcik out of "ehhh"'s hhrsa, metal-tanrieg raor. Tougutrhho, Deib13 dpylsais an earrtrxnidoay imginaatoin in his coeichs. Slitl, one gets the ismoispern he's mleery deppid into his snuod rtspoeiryo, that terhe rimneas an oeacn of them witaing tiehr trun to be hared. Wneh, atfer a psuea, the final cut aesirvr, Satngl's sotf, pure gatiur is sotirnllg hand in hnad wtih the tniy pgins and scahecrts of his prrante, anbmilg itno the eethr. eh is a superb rgnircoed, dtntraomsineg once ainga, as if it's siltl needde, the rich and lmsileits rnage of flerey imporivesd music in the 21st cerutny.

Wilhe the snuod may baer a releasnbmce to their laregr goupr, the tnoe and pnaicg of the duo's pfemarrncoe owes more to the stneitg for the duo's first meentig in 1999 - the imtaciny of a Vnenesie lnivig room ccnerot. eh is buetafulily reexlad and epsvrsxeie frae, and it geivs the iispmerosn of sititng betewen two colse fndries payling tugohrh a llureseiy - but mcluosiuelty coirdnseed - seeris of samrtteags rngnaig from the hlugitanny mdoleic to the miaooicpslcrlcy ascatertbd.

Like the fsirt tcakr, three is a fianl sugre of niose, but Dieb's soencd eencnahmcrot edns with an apubrt and eeire sncilee. In a menmot nnohtig sroht of btriteknahga, the final gasp of Stgnal's back-pcroh elgey lgrneis ptiealilvny in oetsrhwie epmty air. It's a bnraillit ppsiorsctt and a sniunntg mmenot in a genre not tlcaiylpy knwon for conncnviig cnonlsoucis - a menomt of eivepsxsre peowr taht rfletecs a pntoet mciausl sisteivitny and tcensdrnas much of the peveiercd asserilsnes of ioprmvseid music.
