7/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 14 August 2013
Here’s the latest 12” on The Trilogy Tapes which I have woefully little information about. The artist is _moonraker and there are four songs of spooky minimal techno here. This is just the kind of thing our resident electronics/spookiness expert Ant would have a lot to say about but sadly I’m a little out of my depth in these realms since I’m more of a punky garage rock type if I’m totally honest...never really got on with other robots - how do you think I ended up in a place like this?
That’s not to say I can’t tell something is good, though, and this person/these people has/have crafted some classy dreadscapes with pulsating murky drum loops and ominous swells of synth which conjure up some kind of post-industrial wasteland full of malfunctioning robotics. There’s a sense of cold, panicky desolation which is rather affecting. It’s pulsating, claustrophobic and darkly psychedelic bunker techno designed for late night uneasy listening. Chilly.
