    As originally published by Mathias Pageau on Exclaim!In the past decade, electronic artist Harry Aguis has released a string of singles and EPs under the moniker Midland. A patient deconstruction of the codes of techno and minimal house, his catalogue built to the sunny, disco-leaning hit "Final Credits," published in 2016.

With badtrip, Pavel Milyakov offers a postmodern riff on the codes of club music, and every track on the album seems articulated around its own puchline. Taken at face value, "wb movement" is a pretty immediate techno jam. Yet, without falling into some "it's the notes you don't play" rhetoric, its slinky a
