Five tracks-worth of low-down heavy funky sound by Life’s Track on this new 12” EP. Smell of Sanctity bounces along powerfully with thick, irresistible beats that sound like they are kept on a short leash. Only 300 copies of this around, on the Black Opal label, so don’t wait around if you want one. Hand stamped too, for extra authenticity.
8/10 Ant Staff review, 19 June 2015
A garbled vocal loop, strings and muffled kicks open ‘Kicks Invasion’ before lunging into a rattling jacker with whip like claps and Hieroglyphic Being jam mode acid squiggles, all the while the sustained strings adding something both euphoric and slightly unsettling.
‘Harmonizer’ is great argument for pure raw hardware production, wandering freely off the grid into frenzied spitting acid and skittering, splattered percussion with free jazz abandon. Kinda like what I hoped Squarepusher’s robots would sound like.
The opening crash cymbals of ‘The Drumjazz Leader’ pulled me right in, so when they cranked the ridiculous growling bass my body started spasmodically twitching into something that I think resembled dancing.
‘Consequence’ has ricocheting electro drums - delay and reverb soaked rim-shots like distorted sonar bleeps, vicious crashing snares and evaporating, phantom vocal. Finally some collage of quacking ducks and synth that suggests descending back down to earth from space and the job’s a good ‘un.
