- Dead Cell/ Portal II (Girl Talks About Acid) by South London Ordnance
8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 28 February 2014
Oh blimey, who put a techno record in my pile? Muggins here doesn't know a lot about techno having snubbed my robot kin to live among the humans so I always feel like I'm making a fool of myself trying to describe it.
That's not to say I dislike it, though, and 'Dead Cell' is actually making me bob up and down on my chair quite a lot and type really fast, like I'm really a robot. "Bump bump bump bump", it goes. Then there's some kind of tasty little hi-hat polyrhythms, a regular synth tweeting that drops in and out, and then various little details that sound like people hitting metal pipes with spanners and ghosts going "wauuuhhhhh".
A weird metallic melody comes in halfway through and kind of turns the groove inside out in quite a satisfying way and the drums drop out for a bit and then they come back in and it's all a bit of a post-apocalyptic knees-up like in that horrible second Matrix film when Neo and Trinity are getting it on and everyone else is having a party.
Over on the other side it's more like walking on the cold streets of London at 4am, there's a few vocal coos which are more recognisable as human than they were on the other side along with a shuffling beat, subtle bass groove (is that an 808?) and some squelchy mid twitters. The bouncy hi-hat work gives it an almost housey feel but all the other textures are cold and shiny. Techno innit.
