After a little digging I'm finding out that the 12" that I'm listening to right now is by Bronze Teeth, but not just any old bronze teeth. This Bronze Teeth is in fact the super-team of Dominic Butler from Factory Floor and Richard "L/F/D/M" Smith.
There are three tracks of repetitive post-techno action going on here which mix Butler's modular trance-outs with Smith's more acidy techno for a heavy and primitive bit of synth abuse. On side A is 'Albion Pressure', their 13-minute paean to West Brom, which drives pacily along with a repetitive kick drum and a droning synth pulse fed by rhythmic flutters and stabbing melodic wobbles. It's robotic and kinetic and a bit cosmic.
The two tracks on the flip are a bit more laid back and less overwhelming, making more use of negative space and subtle microrhythms in comparison to the pummelling intensity of the other side. Of the two I'm liking the bleeps and boops subtle drones of 'Cut Bronze' the best because closer 'Tephra' has some pretty nasty buzzing drones that are testing my patience a little. Those aside, though, if you're a fan of either of these artists' other output then I'm pretty confident you'll enjoy this too.
