8/10 Ant 11 July 2014

Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty unleash the beastly fifth installment in their ongoing Test Pressing/ Research and Development series.

‘Procrastination’ is industrial strength deconstructed heavyweight grime. Imagine Ancient Methods and Mika Vainio dishing out a brutal and aggressive Ruff Sqwad inspired cranium bludgeoner complete with gargantuan stoned low end ridiculous bass. The crushing  gunshot rhythms sound like some sorta mammoth transformer having a seriously bad day. Then there's a sorta steam train blasting sound and a paranoid drone emerges as everything comes together erupting in a climax of filtered noise. My wife actually entered the room and told me she likes it after telling me Popul Vuh’s ‘Hosianna Mantra’ was too widdly. After increasing the volume to somewhat ridiculous levels for 10:00 in the morning to increase both of our pleasure, the vibrations got a bit wild and my left speaker fell on me. High volume playback is recommended whilst exercising a modicum of caution to prevent injury.

Fortunately said speaker incident was non life threatening and I live to scrawl about ‘Past Majesty’ on the B-side; sounding somewhere between the EBM referencing chug of Powell and the metal laced breakbeat driven industrial of Justin Broadrick as JK Flesh. The clipped drums recalling Suburban Knight’s ‘Maroon’ on Underground Resistance while what sounds like the mechanics of a camera shutter loops and reverses. Heavy and driving with throbbing bass, it’s bound to get your cyber-goth party swinging.
