Ever fancied working in a lonely industrial unit at night in a bleak part of town, alone only for the soothing roar of machines? Its possible that Emptyset have dreamed of such scenarios. Its as if spending such long hours alone with whirring machines would play tricks on your mind and the sound eventually forms some type of dance music. Eventually you put your hard hat and rubber gloves down and start jacking your body as the machines take over.
What we have is according to Phil “dark clinical sounding electronic bass music” and he couldn’t be more right. Its like every whirr has been sweated over for months. Strangely, for such cold, calculated music, its hugely enjoyable. You get lost in the sounds which are buzzy, grainy slabs of synth arranged meticulously and in such a way to guarantee ruin of your bass bins.
Huge monilithic chunks of grimy sound thunders from the speakers, the album appears to have been made in black and white. There are no conventional beats as such but the way the sound has been arranged provides an odd sense of rhythm. Near my house there lies a former cold war bunker, this could be the perfect soundtrack to a twilight visit, as the doors slam shut and you are left alone in the decontamination room.
