8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 24 October 2013

I’ve been meaning to check out Basic House anyway because he’s playing round these parts in a couple of weeks with Gnod and Bass Clef, so it’s just as well I’ve wound up with it on my review stack this week. Turns out he’s actually the alter-ego of Opal Tapes honcho Stephen Bishop so you’re in safe hands here. It’s quite busy-sounding warped and fragmented electronica/techno business with gritty pulsing alien beats and all manner of grinding, fluttering, stumbling loops which bring up mental images of horror movie sewer chases with giant spiders and something much bigger following too close behind for comfort (but not close enough to get a proper look).

It varies from steadily bumping dystopian post-techno with a bit of a Haxan Cloak feel to full-on experimental noise passages and Hacker Farm-ish swathes of crumbling, splinterered electronic scree. Considering how pitch black the tones are it’s actually going down well in the office with Kim and Li’l Biz both expressing their delight at its ‘orrible soundscapes. Fans of Demdike Stare, Pye Corner Audio, Hacker Farm, Burial Hex, Forest Swords, and all those other chilly modern outsiders of the kind you might find on that ‘Outer Church’ comp, you should get this. It’s good.


10/10 beth Customer review, 17th August 2014

way too battered to write a proper review of this right now, but fuck me, wow! just got this on for the first time and it's proper knocked me sideways. astonishing, and even eclipses today's other highlight - a bird shitting in ashley young's mouth : http://gfycat.com/NeedyRemorsefulHornedviper

10/10 for oats, 10/10 for today - it's been a goodun :)
