The second release for Ali Wells’s (Perc) Submit label is a 4 track 12” and 11 track CD. Submit seems to be dedicated to exploring the more “experimental” noise/ industrial end of the techno spectrum, the first 12” on the imprint was Perc reworks of Einsturzende Neubauten tracks. As dark and heavy/ noisy as the Perc Trax material often is, for the most part, here we abandon the dancefloor euphoria, looking at girls bottoms wiggling in favour of lurking in darkened corners, staring at the floor, spasmodically twitching.
Bleaching Agent (Mira) opens the set with the ace, menacing ‘Yellow Corduroy Wall’ which feels like a bad trip creeping up on ya. Burial Hex goes for a surprisingly upbeat industrial electro doomer. Wolf Eyes' John Olson appears as Henry & Hazel Slaughter for a simple stripped back drum tack with the drum appearing to become increasingly distorted on each hit to the point of ridiculous overload. Pete Swanson’s ‘Pleasure Averse’ is what I would have imagined Dominick Fernow’s techno would sound like had I never heard Vatican Shadow. Prostitutes chip in with ‘Braces On my Fangs’ which is as the title suggests, nightmarish black techno.
Generally speaking this is a good snapshot of the noisy techno underground featuring a healthy mix of lesser known artists and more established producers. The more club friendly cuts by Pete Swanson, Prostitutes, Burial Hex and Profilgate are all on the wax. The Profilgate track might I add is pretty decent too with a big fuzzy bassline and Plastikman ‘Spastik’ style rushing snares.
