Having previously notched-up must-check Special Request releases on one vital rave-era record label, XL, Paul Woolford has now brought the hardcore and jungle-influenced project to another imprint that defined dance music in the early '90s, Belgian stable R&S Records. As you'd expect, he's in full-on bassbin-bothering, mind-mangling mode, with title track "Spectral Frequency" - a ruffneck, early jungle style workout with added intergalactic electronics - hitting home hardest of all. There's a bizarre (but kind of brilliant) backwards version ("Inverse Frequency") included on the A-side, before Woolford showcases the more melodious, ambient techno side of his multiple musical personalities on wonderfully warm and ear-pleasing flipside cuts "Family Doggo" and "No Other Way To See It".
