- After The Social EP by Stave
8/10 Ant Staff review, 02 March 2015
‘After The Social’ is the third record from Chicago’s Stave aka Jonathan Krohn, following releases on Flingco Sound System, Trensmat and Downwards (as half of Talker). Here he appears on Ascion, D. Carbone and Shapednoise’s Repitch Recordings with three full on slammers plus a Regis Remix.
Krohn goes straight for the jugular on opener ‘Hardened Chord’ -- a tough, driving peaktime banger with jackhammer solid kicks and a filthy shredding bassline that I can just visualize the freaks losing their shit to - a beautiful sight to behold. The Regis Remix is more stomping with a brutal, hard as nails kickdrum and claustrophobic buzzing synths which retreat midway stripping it back into pummeling percussion then creeping back in with additional eerie atmospherics. This is basically straight up banging industrial techno as opposed to his more recent "stepping" offerings.
‘Circle Pit’ wanders ever further into the darkness, again full-on banging gear - the machines have risen and it’s pandemonium. Folks must be shitting themselves at raves these days cuz this is some proper Terminator nightmare shit. ‘Paid Jazz’ has a doomy bassline, steely synth drone and martial drums because clearly people who go out now prefer to feel like they're in a war zone and not at a party. I’m all for it.
