Mental Overdrive is the primary solo moniker of Per Martinsen (born 31 July 1966), one of Norway's most prolific and influential techno musicians. His tracks have ranged from hardcore rave techno to vibrant space-disco, and he's always maintained a healthy balance of humor and braininess. Active since 1990, he began his career releasing several 12" EPs of aggressive, rave-ready hardcore techno on revered Belgian label R&S, including 12000 AD (1990), The Second Coming (1991), Move! (as Confusion Club, 1991), and The Love EP (1992). The album showed a notable progression in his music, maintaining its rough, distorted hardcore techno sound while adding more cerebral elements, placing it closer to Warp's Artificial Intelligence series. This was followed by full-length Ad Absurdum, which continued in a more light-hearted and funky direction than his previous releases.

Reductio ad Absurdum’ kicks straight back into things, jangling on a dime with a djent-like riff spliced perfectly with classic Dream Theater crescendo fervour. Drums come rollicking and kicking around like cans on an empty street, morphing into a strange polyphony of effects-heavy synth, bass, chordal dissonance and odd trills. The final moments of the album draw us into the event horizon now, shifting back and forth in a temporal soup. A push-pull between a thick groove soup and a staccato attack and, just like that, it’s done.
