Acote is the new alias belonging to Toronto artist Jeff-Antoine Cote (fka BSMNT). With his debut release for Modern Math titled "Northern Flight EP (MM009)" he offers a melodically sparse & intricately rich percussive piece that finds the label returning to the cavernous dance floor minded sounds that frequented its early years as an event series in the late 00's. British sound system culture influence is apparent throughout the release. Acote's use of contrasting modular garage shuffles within a half time techno framework on "Northern Flight" & "Turns" pay homage to early post dubstep/UK techno crossover while "Progress" switches the tempo to a late night floor focussed autonomic style dnb roller. With their ninth release Modern Math maintain the deep atmospherics they've become known for throughout their catalog while reminding listeners of the labels early roots on the dance floor.
