Here’s the first outing from Bronze Teeth; the duo of Dominic Butler (Factory Floor) and Richard Smith (Optimo Music’s L/F/D/M). The pair serve up three gnarly club tracks for Powell’s Diagonal imprint, kicking off with the epic twelve minute ‘Tapeworm’. This wriggler get’s to work with an incessant pounding filtered metallic rhythm. Through repetition and gurgling electronics the intensity seemingly increases constantly. Midway it breaks down and gets sucked low into the filter then of course emerges more brutal with harsh lazer pulses. Sounds like an extended studio jam/ live take in the sense it’s not overworked and just flows freely and I can just imagine them both grinning menacingly in the studio while tweaking the knobs. If I’m honest I’d had enough after seven minutes but then if I was on a sweaty dancefloor at 3AM I’d probably want it to go on for all of eternity. A rugged, raw and kinda brutal track.
‘Acetone’ like the previous tune makes heavy use of filtering on a filthy analogue synth riff ,augmented by delicate drum machine rhythms with sharp piercing snares building into a noisy crescendo.
Final cut ‘Glass Tooth’ is all buzzing pure electric sound and funky mechanical groove recalling a less polished Diamond Version. It’s the sound of pure voltage being controlled and moulded into brain zapping and body moving waves of sound. My personal fave on the EP. Good stuff.
