Karenn Vinyl, CD & tapes by Karenn at Norman Records
Producers Blawan and Pariah rejoin forces under their Karenn moniker for a new EP on the Voam imprint. After not releasing for almost 5 years they are back with vigor and a futurist glance on techno. From filthy pounders 'Rek' and 'Salz', to skippier breaks that smack of broken machines whirring into life.

By Blawan’s standards, this double EP is a laid-back affair. By Blawan’s standards, that is. So even though there’s nothing here which sounds specifically like a portal to Cthulhu’s lair is about to open up where your record player is, Nutrition still contains six cuts of pummelling techno. ‘993’ and ‘Calcium Red’ are about as close as he gets to the sound of ‘Why They Hide The Bodies…’ etc, while ‘Trampelpfad’ and ‘Mayhem’ are still pretty darn spooky. Out on his own TERNESC imprint.
Dubstep crime-fighting duo Karenn is made up of Blawan, the shady alias of future garage innovator Jamie Roberts, and Pariah, also known as Arthur Cayzer. Together, they make hardware-dominated techno. They've been away for a little while, but they're back to business with 'SHEWORKS006', with its fittingly minimal album art. Fall into a dubstep black hole.
