“Front End” is one of 10 tracks which will appear on System Fork, the upcoming album from Application, a new project launched by Martin and Richard Dust of UK outfit The Black Dog. Eschewing the usual production process of studio experimentation, for Application’s tracks, the two artists have chosen to methodically plan out every detail of its productions before ever beginning to put them together. In the case of “Front End,” the resulting composition is a precise electronic excursion, one where hiss-laden hats and snappy snares give an industrial edge to the tune’s sci-fi synth work and steady low-end pulse. The full System Fork LP will debut the Application project when it lands on June 30 via the Dust Science outpost.
