Thug Entrancer's 'Death After Life' is an eight-part suite of thumping techno which the press release says "re-frames elements of Chicago Juke and house in long-form design". What this means for you is a lengthy trip down bleepy lane, with modular synths galore pumping out rapidly cycling little patterns while a bass drum pumps persistently away accompanied by all manner of drum machine details, from cold hard downbeat head-nodders to some frantic snare action in 'Death After Life III', which develops into full-on power-electronic carnage.
This nocturnal and spacey and clinical and often quite dark aesthetic pervades throughout though, with those modular synths and electronic beats being central to the album's hypnotic core. Part III seems to be the apex of the LP, with the preceding tracks ramping up the tension and then the ones following gently taking you back to earth. I have to admit I'm enjoying the more understated bits the most, they've got a real tension and paranoia about them that's very appealing, and thankfully they take up the bulk of this collection. Shiny robotic darkness.
