Apologies to Kode9 and Hyperdub but I’m trying to get this review done before I go to the toilet. I’ve been wanting to go since about 8am - that’s about three and a half hours ago - so as you can imagine things are starting to get urgent. I learnt yesterday that children can go all day without needing to use the toilet. This would be an excellent skill to have in the busy world of adulthood, it would certainly save me a couple of hours per day.
The first track here is a kind of wildly lopsided electronic dance/funk. It veers between double time beats and a slower more staggering beat, you never quite know where you are with it, it’s truly mental. The B side starts with a sound only akin to a miniature kettle whistling away, underneath is the sound of a malfunctioning drum machine joined eventually by some warm synths softening up the crazy rhythms. Truly an extraordinary sounding thing and quite unlike anything else out there this week. Gotta go...
