Cool chunk of wax here by the enigmatic Rxry. We played it at the wrong speed at first and it still sounded fresh. On 33, its accurate rpm-age, you're treated to some ricocheting cosmic techno soaked in sonic fuzz - pulpy smart-beats and snappy metallic echoes under-laid with some lovely bass rumbles & shimmering electronic ephemera. This is basically a dark IDM record but it does away with the ominous oppression and grime of someone like Scorn and replaces it with a dense, shifting cyber-jungle of murky tropical weirdness. Basically if you were to get Autechre to remix a track by, say, High Wolf, it could be along the lines of the second tune here which is pretty deep stuff. Overleaf (do records have leaves? - No, Ed) you'll find more glitched-out industrialisms mingling with some beautiful drones and lingering synth-scapes. Once again the android beats sound fuzzed-out and metallic but still have enough propulsion and energy to slay the dance-floor of your mind. In spirit I'd definitely recommend this album to Fuck Buttons fans, but the beats are far more futuristic & exciting and the sound-world is more layered, moody and intoxicating. In fact this record is easily one of the best things I've heard this week, a thumping, ecstatic hybrid of delicious astral noise, meditative ambient melodies & sharp experimental techno shapes. Nice work!!
