Steven McInerney directs the video for the single ‘Portent’ for London electronica outfit Circle Traps. Now working with Lex Records, Circle Traps’ new EP ‘Machine City’ is another brave step forward. There’s a shuddering machine funk here, a physicality which at times borders on rock music. Yet the colours, the tones are born from technology. ‘Portent’ is a spiralling piece of techno infused production, continually fluttering and shifting, rolling and evolving with a rare sense of dynamism.
