Opening with "Collateral Force", the Collateral EP sees techno powerhouse and Tronic boss Smith at his toughest. Broken beats underpin "Collateral Force", providing a bass-heavy assault on the senses, while epic pads create a sense of space and depth. "Collateral" takes the track into 4:4 territory and flips the synths into a fluttering arpeggio that adds yet more energy to this peak-time, classic-sounding cut - the sort that Smith has built his rep on since the mid-1990s.

Rounding out with "Brava", a kick-and-clap stomp tempered with frenetic leads, the Collateral EP is yet another slice of proper techno from Symbolism.
