Dom Butler (Factory Floor) and Richard Smith (L/F/D/M) were last spotted on Diagonal with a pair of EP’s as Bronze Teeth. The ‘Black Tongue’ EP sees the duo return to the label with four functional club cuts for dysfunctional dancefloors.
‘ZoZoMoNo’ kicks things off with some endless jagged 303 action over sparse, sweaty drums leaving the dirty acid to do most of the work. ‘Dag’ builds momentum with booming low end, stomping woody kicks and slicing reverse hi-hats and just a wee bit of synth action here and there and that’s all that’s needed to lock into the groove. Reasonably minimal I suppose but the warm hardware sound and fluid non-linear jam feel set it apart from the scourge of polished, rigid minimal techno. Reminds me a bit of that Karlist stuff on Russian Torrent Versions and is defo my pick of the bunch here.
‘Cestoda's Labyrinth’ failed to really pull me in listening at home but this EP as a whole really is more of a DJ tool. Meanwhile ‘Tap Dancing Goat Man’ is as deranged as its title - soundling like Neil Landstrumm’s ‘Brown By August’ pitched right down and smacked off its tits. *** WARNING *** This track contains subliminal messages about Satan so please don’t go blowing your brains out with a shotgun -- like that poor bloke that got a bit confused about that Judas Priest record. Human’s eh!?!?!?
