Ekoplekz Intrusive Incidentalz Vol 2
Vinyl LP. Punch Drunk.
9/10 from Ant (Staff) on 05 October 2012
I honestly can’t think of an artist right now who’s output is so prolific and yet is consistently of the highest quality. I try to keep up with every Ekoplekz release I possibly can and I’m yet to be even remotely disappointed. What’s remarkable about his sound is that his influences are well documented (he wears them approximately half way up his sleeve) yet the final product is startlingly original which is basically a contradiction. I don’t understand it, It must be magic. He just has his own very distinctive sound.
I caught wind of this release a couple of weeks ago when I got the Ekoplekz newsletter (sign up folks as the last edition had a link to a download to a wicked live set) in my inbox and I’ve been dying to hear it ever since as the first installment was bloody ace. Well he’s gone and done it again, this man is stealing food from my children. It’s one dark brooding record too; full of industrial dystopian dubscapes.
One track makes me imagine a metal works in the future manned by rasta aliens with cyber dreads smoking massive alien spliffs while molten metal travels along coveyer belts. Bleak and eerie future dub of the highest order. Easily the darkest spooked Ekoplekz transmission to date.
The terror comes not with in your face aggro noise but with creepy insectoid bleeps, murmurs and infinite effects leaving trails of gloom and paranoia. Imagine Wolf Eyes jamming at Channel One and you’re part way there. I’d kill to hear this on the Iration Steppas sound system.

We're not your normal record shop...
Please note that whilst we're always happy to see you, we are not a normal record shop where you can come and browse the stacks.
There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of crap lo-fi Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.
