Well one of the deepest pleasures of working in the independent sector is hearing truly underground sounds; wildly innovative & free musics from every corner & crevice of the globe. This is one of two sibling electronica compilations we have in this week on a really interesting & progressive label we've been supporting for many years. We used to review compilations with a list of the artists and some background info. We can't get away with that nowadays as that's the job of the press release! Chances are, the average "IDM" fiend will have heard somewhere between between none & fuck-all of the artists on here. But I wouldn't give a damn about that because this is a pretty awesome collection of edgy/vibrant futuristic sounds that veers about excitedly between no particular fixed poles, stopping to squat for a pee in many tempting quarters! On offer here is crackly dystopian tech-house (terminal 11), depressed & pondersome wonky (Cubus), chintzy old Miami electro flecked funk (Brian E), dark, compulsive staggering manglecore from the legendary Autechre-baiting Fluorescent Grey and then some proper Amon Tobin-style insectoid machine funk climbs into your head for a skulk. That's just a snippet-like suggestion of what may be of interest to you here. I'm not trying to push this too much. It is too clever for that! These tunes are superbly sequenced & are, on the whole, often quite stunning & well thought provoking. Whilst dubstep & German dub techno have been busy making populist waves, the new breed of digital pioneers have had fun making fuck-off noises & steadily progressive maneuvers in their secret bunkers. From over the Atlantic they came, I hope they can conquer. Certainly for the handsome price of 4.99 pounds, they can stay in my shabby mindhouse anyday....
