Recorded in 2012/2013, the tracks on this latest release from Elon Katz, aka E L O N, see Katz take an experimental new direction away from the more regular studio based work he produced under the name White Car. Citing influences such as Actress and 90’s beat based electronica, ‘Concupiscence’ explores the eroticism of electronic music through the use of samples of pronography and cinematic sex, transforming the visual on screen sexuality into weirdly animalistic soundscapes.

Concupiscence: strong sexual desire. And how better to sonically represent that than sex samples? On this 12” EP thing, E L O N goes full Venetian Snares/Hecate and pulls a Nymphomatriarch on us. Except instead of making his own, Elon Katz has instead watched loads of porn and skipped to the naughty bits of a multitude of films to make his weird techno for you. K.
Good luck hearing them, though. Occasionally you get gaspy breathiness but there’s so much choppy overdriven editing that you might not even notice had you not been told. The techno is just too strong, banging away at your eardrums. Not like that, Ian. You can stop giggling too, Phil. A1, that is, ‘Oral Oscillator’, is pumping techno for racy ravers, making heavy use of frail, cycling percussions and bludgeoning kicks. A2 brings some more broken beat things that actually do feel pretty Venetian Snares, at least when he’s not doing 200bpm. B1 feels like a slow burning, textural Karen Gwyer tune, heavy on the melodic synth touches with an oddball beat pattern that seems to rearrange itself with every repeat. The final track waves this depraved world goodbye with a more easygoing 4x4 groove and strange scratchy sample loops and reverb ghouls.
Also, that’s the rudest cover.
