Ortem 006 is the mysteriously titled 'Vector Files'.

The 'File' contains 5 tracks that are bleep inspired or touched by the hand of rave and days gone by. 'Bleep Space' launches into a trippy
trajectory as it evokes a sound from early Warp and orbits off into another galaxy, pulling in space debris and appealing to alien life forms. It gathers momentum and encapsulates a Reese bass,
a 2 step shuffle and a call and response from the aliens radio.

The title track takes the baton and runs with it. Proceedings notch up to hyper speed as a rolling acid inspired bass line, boom bap beat, amen chops, arpeggios all fire off as the Halle Bop comet comes into view via some remote viewing. The energy created by the track could catapult a man to Venus.

'Other Side' is Hoovers and Spray cans for '17 and as paint fumes fill the room it takes over with more Strange acid rumblings, 2 steps and Graf vox.

'Atom Smasher' smashes atoms into fragments and as protons, neutrons and electrons fly around, a rasping bass weaves in between acid notes and big claps.

'Rave Stab' starts off Vampy with Mentasm hints underpinned by a solid kick drum sending you back down Jenkins Memory Lane. Big bass and Incredible bongos make a brief but infectious appearance.

"This is an amazing release, the whole things pretty wild. Its like
going to a rave on an upper and a downer at the same time. It's fast,
it's slow, it's old and it's new. It's a very good EP that really shows
something interesting and fresh for this scene, which Ortem has well
and truly delivered." - Tony Justice.
