The first release on Project Squared in a year, “Make Your Mess” is a three track EP by Melbourne’s Craig McWhinney. Craig has been making music for years and releasing since the late 2000s on Melbourne labels such as Pinksilver, Melbourne Deepcast and his own Haul Music; also on labels based further afield such as Brendon Moeller’s Steadfast and Speedy J’s Electric Deluxe. Craig’s music is Techno, but it isn’t preoccupied with the 4/4, employing broken, swung and rolling drum patterns. His tracks often include melodic and harmonic elements and effects reminiscent of Dub Techno but without conforming to the pastiche template of the sub-genre.

The Make Your Mess EP is composed of the core title track and two additional tracks that arose as interpretations and variations on the initial production: “Provocation Is An Excuse” is more furious and loud, “Disengage” is more restrained. All three are around 125 bpm and were produced in the space of a month between September and October 2012.
