Punk-informed beat-science for the dance.. more chat below.. (NM/NM).
Fresh from the needle skating industrial-punk of Tata Toto’s “Fuck” flexi-postcard, new Parisian imprint Association Fatale drop their first vinyl proper in ‘L’Alarme Fatale’, a four tracker of razor sharp cuts from some of their nearest and dearest.
Parisian duo Jita Sensation kick the set off with occult whispers, flanging hats and the mechanical funk of ‘Posuere Nec’, a shamanic dancer which digs deeper into Xanax rave territories as it bursts into technicolour insanity.
The A2 belongs to Zulu and their ‘Vogeltanz’, a pitched down powerhouse of woody bass, electronic birdsong and futuristic breaks which takes a brief detour into the neon-matrix of Rustie on its way to the run-out.
Flip the disc and cop a load of ‘Tekamina’, the latest mind-melter from Drama-acolyte DJ F16 Falcon. Mangled vocal snippets, crushing system pressure and some batshit FX abuse are the order of the day on this whacked out track!
Bringing the curtain down with maximum angst, speaker tweaking mids and a gnarly bassline, So Track’s ‘Graille’ seems tailor made for the current climate - I can picture an industrial unit full of people dressed like Scorpion from Mortal Kombat losing their mind to this cut.
