You know an electronic producer is an especially new face on the scene if they don't even have a page to call their own. You won't find Moog Conspiracy there yet — this is his debut for the Elektrotribe label — but it's hard to believe that will be the case for long. Sure, Is It Deep? sounds tentative at times, as though Moog Conspiracy is still finding his feet. But even so, there's plenty of promise on hand: from the intriguing high-pitched tones that purport to be the melody of “Saw” to the irresistible funk of “Drop.” Best of all is “Code Alfa,” which uses a Doppler synth to disorient and then punches you straight in the gut with its deep bass.
